Where freshwater flows
Rivers cover around 480,000 square miles of our planet. They're crucial to the communities that rely on them—people and animals alike! River animals have developed incredible adaptations, like the paddlefish, which swims with a wide-open mouth to catch food drifting by on the current, or the glass catfish, which has no scales and is completely transparent, almost disappearing in the river's flow.
