Mother Earth is blessed with many different species of animals. Each of these species is unique and lives in a habitat that fulfills its requirements. A species that is found in one part of the Earth may not be found anywhere else. Every group of animals is one of a kind and has a different style of living. Reproduction is an important part of the life cycle of any living thing, including plants and animals. Giving birth to offspring ensures the continuation and existence of each of these species on the Earth. Many of us know only the names of adult animals and not the names of the baby animals.
