A tapir is an animal about the same size and shape as a pig. Tapirs live in jungles and forests in South and Central America and Southeast Asia. Their closest relatives are the rhinoceros and horse. Tapirs have a long, flexible nose that they use for grabbing leaves off trees with.
The Tasmanian devil is a marsupial that lives in Tasmania. Marsupials are animals that keep their babies in a pouch. Tasmanian devils eat other animals, and are very ferocious hunters. They are about the size of a small dog, but have a heavier build.
Tawny frogmouths are birds very distantly related to owls. Owls usually hunt by flying around at night looking for food, but tawny frogmouths sit still on a perch waiting for food to come to them. They catch their prey with their beaks rather than their feet, and sometimes drop from their perch onto the prey on the ground.
Tawny Frogmouths hunt at night and spend the day sitting on a dead log or tree branch. They camouflage very well. They sit very still, and look just like a piece of dead tree branch.
Termites are insects that live in large colonies. They eat mostly dead plant material, like dead wood or fallen leaves. If they get into your house they may do serious damage to the frame of your house, so people treat their houses with barriers or poison to stop termites getting in.
Thorny devils, also called the thorny dragon, are lizards that live in dry regions in Australia. They grow to around 8 inches long, and can live to 20 years. They eat ants. Their skin has channels in that funnel water to their mouths if they get damp, which allows them to drink morning dew.
