Mammals

Conversation between Buddy and I while he was outside gathering rocks. He was freaking out over every other rock. A wolverine claw! A piece of gold!

Buddy: Oh my gosh! I just found a coyote egg!

Me: Coyotes don't lay eggs. They are mammals.

Buddy: They are? Oh yeah-they have fur.

Me: Amphibians and birds lay eggs. Mammals don't.

Buddy: Mammals have babies, so how do they hatch their babies then, without eggs?

Me: How do you think they have babies?

Buddy: Out of the mommy's tummy?

Me: Yep.

Buddy: Just like a birth mom!
