Day Eight: the American Cheetah!
Today's Kickstarter Animal is the American cheetah! North America has had many animals that we don't think of as North American: the camelops, a form of camel; the American cheetah; the American lion (resembling an African lion more than a cougar); and the mammoth. North America has also had many forms--at one time there was a sea in the middle of it called the Western Interior Seaway. We'll be teaching about these animals and about North American geological history at Earth Day 2015.
