Kid's Nature Magazines – Issue 64 – The Highest Heights

February 2020 edition: The Highest Heights

Just how high above the ground can life endure? There are many challenges living near the peaks of the planet’s highest mountains. There’s intense sunlight, cold winds blasting you from every direction and barely enough oxygen to breathe. But the tallest mountains have all kinds of life. Let’s look at their creatures, from the Himalayan jumping spider – which has the highest home in the world – to the Tibetan sand fox. From snow leopards to hot-spring snakes. From yaks with large lungs to help them breathe up there to gravity-defying, mountain climbing goats!
