Africa is an amazing continent that has many plants and animals. I hope you enjoy learning about Africa as much as I do. If you do here is some more information.
Some animals have camouflage and protection and some have things on their bodies that help them live. For example, a zebra has stripes so it can confuse its predators and an elephant has big ears so it can cool itself off on hot summer days. Giraffes have purple tongues to keep their tongues from getting sunburned. Last of all, meerkats live underground in tunnels for protection from predators.
