This is Waddles the penguin.

Its poem is “when I swim, I go really fast, but when I run, I’m usually last!”. Its birthday is May 11. Now, I will tell you more about penguins.

Penguins are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage and their wings have evolved into flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.

Although all penguin species are native to the Southern Hemisphere they are not found only in cold climates, such as Antarctica. In fact, only a few species of penguin live so far south. Several species are found in the temperate zone, and one species, the Galápagos penguin, lives near the equator. This information is from Ask.com. To learn more, go here.



This is Magic the unicorn.

The poem is “Everyone loves my pretty pink fur, and casting spells is fun for sure!”. It’s birthday is September 20. Now, I will tell you about unicorns.

This information is from the website, The Kids Window:

Both kids and adults are enchanted by the pictures and tales of this legendary creature that has the shape and looks of a horse but also has a magical, spiral shaped horn growing from it’s forehead. These prancing, dancing animals are often described as possessing many different powers including the ability to become invisible at will and the ability to fly. Winged unicorns are also called Pegasi.

Myths and legends about the unicorn have been known and discussed for hundreds of years. One legend says that you can find these mystical creatures only during the light of the full moon. The horn will twinkle and shimmer in the moonlight and this sparkling light will lead you to where they are grazing. Most of the pictures of unicorns show animals that are Snow White in color, but a few are the color of ebony. Their horns are always gold or silver colored and the shape of the horn is shown as a spiral.
