The star-nosed mole has a pink snout that is especially good at finding food.  The snout’s 22 fingerlike rays can touch up to 12 ev olutionobjects in just one second.  The mole also uses strong paddle-shaped feet for burrowing, and its large ear openings give it excellent hearing.  These special traits make up for it poor vision- which it doesn’t really need underground.  (McDougal Littell) Chapter 10

You may think that if you’ve seen one penguin, you’ve seen them all.  However, penguins can differ in body size, feather patterns, and many other traits.  Just like humans, penguins are genetically different from one another.  What is the nature of genetic variation in populations?  And how is this variation measured by biologists?   (McDougal Littell) Chapter 11

Tollund Man and the arthropod found in the Burgess Shale site are both traces of Earth’s history of life, although they lived about 500 million years apart.  They were also preserved as fossils in different ways.  In this section, you will learn about types of fossils, how fossils form, and how they can help us understand the history of life on Earth.  (McDougal Littell)  Chapter 12
