SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

Hello and welcome to class! We’re gearing up for Bat Week here at the University and then Ellie and Edmond will be celebrating Owl-O-Ween! So who’s ready to learn a super cool word today?

Today’s word is Trogolophile: trogolophiles are animals that live just inside the entrance of a cave. Light can be abundant and the animals don’t have adaptations to survive in complete darkness. The word trogolophile comes from greek words (troglos- cave) and (phileo- love). Some trogolophiles include bats, rats, insects and salamanders.
