Kits and Cubs

Kits and Cubs
Animals, just like people, often share the same name!  But don't be fooled - a name isn't everything. Our earlier blog posts about joeys and calves demonstrate how many baby animals can be called the same thing, no matter their size or species. This time, we are going to look at the different animals that are called kits and cubs.
