You guessed right I am a baboon We live and travel together in large groups known as troops. Our babies are also called infants and they love to hug and cling on to their mothers throughout the day I am one of the world’s largest monkeys so it is easy to spot me and my red swelling bottom Are you having fun? Let’s guess this animal! I use my beak to knock on the bark of trees to find food, to communicate and to build nests Who am I? Yes, I am a woodpecker I peck on tree trunks to reach food such as larvae, ants and other insects within the wood After drilling a hole in the wood I use my long tongue to scoop up those insects Isn’t that amazing? I also make tapping sounds by drumming the trees to communicate Listen to me Also, if you see me making a round and large hole in a tree it means that I am building a nest I lay my eggs and raise a family in these nests Are you ready to guess the next animal?
