What is the difference between a whale and a fish? Yes, a whale is a mammal and a fish is not, but did you also know that a whale has sideways tail fins while a fish's fins run up and down? That's why when a whale swims it swings its body up and down, and when a fish swims, it moves from side to side. And how about this: a toad, unlike a frog, has no teeth and spends most of its time on land. A moth has wings that are connected, while the wings of a butterfly are separate. And one way to tell a rabbit from a hare is the simple fact that a rabbit is born without fur and with its eyes closed, while for a hare the opposite holds true.***SRC Quiz***
