Why are baby animals born in the spring?

It’s spring! And spring is the best. Here’s why: flowers, baseball, Easter eggs and baby animals.

Babies are so cute, no matter their shape or size. With spring in the air many babies will spring up at zoos, farms and out in the wild. Some will be furry, fluffy or feathered. Why is spring the perfect time for baby animals to be born?

  • Warm weather. Sun and warmer temperatures make it easier for small babies to survive.
  • Moisture. In some areas of the world spring means the snow has melted, rain showers are on their way and new plants will burst from the earth.
  • Plentiful food. When it’s warm and there’s moisture, it’s easier for babies and their moms to find food to maintain energy and grow.

Spring is about new beginnings, change and growth. Speaking of change and growth, if you have a jar full of coins, you should put it in a savings account at Navigator Credit Union. Over time, keep adding to it and watch it grow — just like zoo babies do. Start smart money habits now. Ask your parents to come with you to visit your neighborhood branch today!
