Can you guess what it is?

Here are some hints:

  • This animal is monogamous.
  • This animal is very slow moving so it sucks up it's prey rather than chasing it down.

Leave us a comment with your answer! Then come see us in the Classroom on Sunday, March 4th at 2:30 pm for Science Story Adventures to see if you're right and to learn more about this animal.
