Thank you, Eternal Frozencheetah, Eternal Bravestar, Empress Fancyclaw, Queen Spiritgem, and Countess Desertrose! You’ve been selected for this week’s Jammer Art featuring BIRDS!
Did you know that most birds have some hollow bones? These bones are called pneumatized (new-ma-tized), which means they’re full of air. This helps keep the birds light so they can fly high and fast. Birds that spend most of their time in water like loons and puffins don’t have any pneumatized bones. Flightless birds like penguins and ostriches only have pneumatized femurs, or thigh bones.
Send me your drawings art through Jammer Central in Jamaa Township or my Art Studio in Coral Canyons!

Dr. Brady Barr finds a carnivorous pitcher plant in southwest China!
There are about 630 species of carnivorous plants that use one of five basic methods of trapping their prey.
Pitcher plants, like the ones in the video above, use pitfall traps to trap prey in a rolled leaf that they can’t escape. Flypaper traps are super sticky. Snap traps shut tight on foolish insects. Bladder traps suck in prey like a vacuum. Finally, lobster-pot traps have hairs that can only be walked on one way, towards the stomach!
