Students in Texas tell us about their local animals :
Have you ever heard a mocking bird sing?
This bird has a most unique feature and this is its call (the sound a bird makes).
Mockingbirds get their name from their ability to mimic the sounds and calls of other animals. This includes non-animal sounds such as sirens, squeaky doors, and animal sounds like meowing or barking. Ornithologists (scientists who study birds) have identified that mockingbirds can make up to 50 separate call sounds, which is a remarkable vocal ability!!!!
Armadillo is the state animal of Texas. It is a distant cousin of the sloth and the anteater. It is the only mammal which has a protective armored shell on its body
