Betting MBE's mom and dad readers agree with National Geographic Kids that both teamwork and good sportsmanship are essential values every boy and girl should possess. So I'm excited to share these adorable and inspiring photos that exemplify those characteristics and show kids they can be and do anything they want. Without a doubt, bike riding dogs, acrobatic chimpanzees, racing pigs and other wacky weekend animal athletes all express the same message: YES WE CAN!
In the spirit of amazing creatures, there's also fun competition going on for children worldwide. Help your kid take a photo of their own special animal athlete, then enter it in the Amazing Animals category of the 2016 National Geographic Kids International Photography Contest. The prize is a family-friendly trip of a lifetime for two to the Galápagos Islands provided by National Geographic Expeditions. Hurry and enter soon, because this kids photo contest ends October 15, 2016.
