Keeping Cool (50) More files...
When temperatures rise animals have a variety of means to seek relief from the heat. Some head for a nearby waterhole for a soak, seek out chilly snow patches or natural shade while others create their own shade like squirrels that use their bushy tails to screen the sun. Kangaroos lick their forelegs - as the saliva evaporates they cool down. In the desert lizards lift opposing feet so only two are in contact with the ground at a time and some animals like dogs, penguins and crocodiles pant to regulate their temperature.
