Earwigs are a very common insect found all over the world. They eat ripe fruit, trash, other insects and the young shoots of plants.
They get their name because a long time ago people beleived that earwigs crawled into people's brains through their ears to lay their eggs. Earwigs do like hiding in warm, dark, damp places so it is possible they will hide in people's ears if they have the chance.
Elephants are the largest land animals on earth (whales are the largest animal, but they live in the sea). They can live for 70 years. There are two different kinds of elephant, African and Asian (or Indian) elephants. African elephants are larger and have bigger ears. The elephant in the picture is an African elephant.
Emus are a large flightless bird that lives in Australia. It is the second-largest bird, after the ostrich. They eat insects and some plants.
Emus lay very large, speckly blue eggs with hard shells. The male emu looks after the eggs and babies.
