Hippo: It’s name means river horse, and they are far larger than a dog. It’s from the Greek words for river (potamus) and horse (hippo). Earthworm: They have no legs, arms or eyes, do not like the sun and can’t swim. Snake: They’re on all continents except Antarctica, most are not dangerous, and they really can eat animals way bigger than themselves! Eagles are apex predators, and while they can lay over a dozen eggs, several hundred is a bit much. The eaglets (or chicks) hatch after about 35 days.
