It’s Time to do a Spot Check!

Test your mad animal skillz! Can you jot what kind of dots we got?
Teeny-weeny polka dot bikiknees? Kate’s postpartum fashion fad? Connect-the-Dots for fleas? Or a knee slappin’-toe tappin’, dappled baby tapir?

Found at the Minnesota Zoo, by Karin S. of Cool for Cats.
