Scholastic News -- Edition 1;Apr2010, Vol. 66 Issue 7, Special section p1
The article presents a discussion about the characteristics of different animals and their babies. The baby of a deer is called a fawn, which are identified through the spots on their fur. Cygnets are the babies of an adult swan, which is known for its big smooth feathers and an orange bill. Meanwhile, baby frogs are called tadpoles which often stay in the water until they turn into frogs.
