Animal Science is what we love learning about. There are so many animals on our planet to learn about. Unfortunately we can’t go take a trip to the Zoo right now with the pandemic but we have been doing Virtual through Explore.org, The Bronx Zoo and others, which you can check out on our Virtual Field trip article. We’ve also been watching The Zoo on the animal planet where they filmed at the Central Park Zoo and the Bronx Zoo, two zoos we happen to visit a lot when it’s safe. Since I can’t fulfill that promise right now I thought why not create our own dream zoo, or replicate the Bronx zoo as best as possible. So I searched the Minecraft Universe (just kidding, it’s our add on app for the Pocket Edition) and found this awesome world. Let’s go find out why it’s so awesome and Matthew’s now favorite world to play on.
The * marks that these animals exist in the regular minecraft worlds, everything else was added on through a modification. There are many more I didn’t add that were animals but Plushies, Pirates, People etc. This List is only for the animals, some have more than one egg so i will add the + to indicate that.
Duck-billed platypuses are small, shy animals. They have a flattened head and body to help them glide through the water. Their fur, dark brown on top and tan on their bellies, is thick and repels water to keep them warm and dry even after hours of swimming. The duck-billed platypus’s head and body grow to about 15 inches (38 centimeters) and its tail grows to about 5 inches long (13 centimeters). Their most remarkable feature is their amazing snout. It looks like a duck’s bill, but is actually quite soft and covered with thousands of receptors that help the platypus detect prey.Males are also venomous. They have sharp stingers on the heels of their rear feet and can use them to deliver a strong toxic blow to any foe.Platypuses spend most of their time alone, sleeping or eating. These mammals are bottom feeders. They scoop up insects and larvae, shellfish, and worms in their bill along with bits of gravel and mud from the bottom. All this material is stored in cheek pouches and, at the surface, mashed for consumption. Platypuses do not have teeth, so the bits of gravel help them to “chew” their meal.
