+Hooks and hangs itself prehensile style
+Paves the path with sticky glue slime
+Just watch a velvet moss covered branch that's mobile
+but watch out for that log-like predator's guile in the Nile
with a sly smile to beguile

+Nocturnal eyeballs move on baby face in the bush, oh my!
+Another a bird with the name of a flying toy in the sky.

+Its tongue that shoots out like a soft shooting arrow
+A winged biped one standing as upright as a human fellow.

+This one has the largest ears
+This one a little crown he wears

+A living teddybear gives its baby a piggy back ride.
+A young one who in its mommy's 'hide' pocket does hide

+Hardened skin house moving upon four wheels
+And another with a clothing that peels.

+Shakes its tail like a human baby's toy
+For safety in numbers this one's caravan convoy
Mention 3 animals who this method of travel employ.
