I found one new word in ANIMAL PLANET BABY ANIMALS by Dorothea DePrisco even though the book is geared to 8 to 12 year olds.
1. tymbal – “Tymbals on the belly vibrate, making sounds to communicate with others.”
A tymbal (or timbal) is a membrane that forms part of the sound-producing organ in various insects, as the cicada. It can also mean a kettledrum.
What words do you want to celebrate today?
