Song for Teaching About Special Mammals
This song is available on Lyrical Learning's
Lyrical Life Science Volume 2: Mammals, Ecology, and Biomes
Armadillos live in Texas, south of the border too
Considered "toothless" mammals, anteater and sloth too
The anteater eats insects and worms found in the ground
The sloth likes to hang on the trees and view things upside down
The order's edentata, with creatures so diverse
Of course they are all mammals 'cause their babies, mothers nurse
Because the sloth lives in the trees, it is arboreal
Armadillos 'n anteaters that live on the land are terrestrial
The anteater's mouth is but a small hole of pencil size
Its sense of smell is keen cause it can't rely on its eyes
It finds an ant nest digs a bit and then inserts its snout
It uses its long sticky tongue to pull the insects out
Armadillos can defend themselves by their protective plates
That are skin-covered bone, this is the armadillo's trait
The tree sloth climbs from limb to limb its movement is so slow
But it can hardly walk at all if on the ground below
