This pretty flower is a Nymphaea Water Lily. These are just like lily pads by floating on the water, but frogs don't hop on them and that's a fact!There are plenty of these at most ponds. People from back in the days said that when rained and the little puddles where there, there was already one of these flowers there!

This is a normal Lilies but pink. These live on lily pads like the one on top of this flower. It is the same exact thing as that one except for the fact that is pink instead of white.

Ponds and Lakes Animals


This fish is called a Nudibranch.They are located in China. They use those orange spikes to scare off bigger fish but, they are actually as sharp as paper! If the bigger fish are not fooled, the Nudibranch will use those pincers and fight!

This is a platypus. These creatures are some times scared of kids. The kids think they are aliens since it is a mixture of a duck and a beaver and start freaking out. But the platypus gets scared because he thinks the kids are the aliens!

This is a small mouth bass and as you can tell by the name, it has a very small mouth! That is why it is very hard to catch and only very good fishermen could possibly catch them.This little critter has a very still diet of plankton.
