Can You Say OVOVIVIPAROUS?
Today my daughter petted a Chinese water dragon, an albino Honduran milk snake, a tortoise, and two blue-tongued skinks at my school's annual community fair.
Word of the day:
bring forth, bear
An animal that is ovoviviparous is an animal that is inside an egg, but brought forth alive! The egg hatches inside the mother's body!
A skink is ovoviviparous. A viper (
), which is also "brought forth alive," is ovoviparous.
