Active Wild Animal Of The Week

Welcome to Active Wild's new Animal of the Week section!

Each week we'll be featuring an extra special member of the animal kingdom, and giving it its own page.

We'll take an in-depth look at the selected animal, and present all of the essential information in a clearly presented, easy-to-read article.

Of course, we'll also include the very best pictures, not to mention incredible facts and figures!

See all of the previously featured animals here: Animal Of The Week Archive.

Be sure to subscribe to Active Wild to ensure you never miss a new animal! (You can fill in a form further down the page).
