Description

This composite flowers in late summer without any ray flowers. I've never seen a bee or butterfly on it. But it's not shy about spreading, and at last count we dug up 12 plants that had spread to different parts of the yard.
It's slightly invasive.

Description

A well-established white & blue "form" of Viola sororia. I doubt that it is truly a subspecies. Originally introduced in 1981, and spreads erratically, disappearing from some places and reappearing in others.

Description

HABITAT: Today, koala populations are confined to a handful of the remaining eucalyptus forests of eastern Australia, from northern Queensland to southern Australia. Don’t let the koala’s cuddly looks fool you; they have powerful legs and forefeet that help them scale the eucalyptus trees in which they live.

DIET: Koalas may be small in size, but they eat approximately two and a half to three lbs. of foliage daily! They mainly munch on the young leaves, shoots, bark, and seedpods of the eucalyptus species that are specific to their habitat
.PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS: The koala’s body is adapted for a tree-dwelling lifestyle. Their extremely sharp claws, vice-like grip, and ridged foot pads allow them to scale 100 ft

Description

ABITAT: Speke’s gazelle are found in open, semi-desert plateaus of Somalia and parts of Ethiopia.

DIET: These browsers feed in the early morning. In their very arid habitat, dew rarely accumulates, and predawn feeding gives these animals the highest moisture content from the foliage they consume.

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Small and fragile looking, Speke’s gazelle are fawn-colored with a distinct black flank, and a paler band above it
