Fabulous Feral Fathers: This Year's 4 Superdads!

This year's super dads are: the Emperor Penguin, the Hardhead Catfish, the Seahorse and the Red Fox.

1) Seahorse

Kudos to Poppa Seahorse because he is has the most important job—he’s the one carries the eggs! Yes, you read that right. Once the female seahorse lays her eggs in the male seahorse’s pouch, he will carry the eggs up to 45 days until the baby seahorses appear. The number of eggs vary by species, but the seahorse can hold up to 1,500 baby seahorses. This role reversal makes this sea animal one of the coolest species in the world!




2) Red Fox

Daddy Red Fox not only plays with his pups with endless energy and enthusiasm, he is also a dedicated teacher. He takes the lead on helping develop and strengthen their survival skills. First this Father Fox begins by reducing the food brought into the den, which helps draw the pups out of their comfort zone. He then goes as far as burying and hiding food to help train the young foxes to sniff around to find their own food.




3) Emperor Penguin

In the harsh climate of Antarctica, it is up to the Emperor Penguin Pa to keep the egg warm. Unlike other birds who sit on a nest of eggs, the penguin carefully balances the single egg on his feet making sure that it is covered by his feathery skin known as the brooding pouch. This proud Pop forgoes his meals and withstands blistery winds and snow storms for about 65 days taking care of a single egg!




4) Hardhead Catfish

Don’t underestimate this water daddy! For the first couple of months, it is up to the hardheaded catfish Dad to carry the eggs in his mouth until they hatch. It’s a method called mouthbrooding and it’s widely practised among the Ariidae fish family. One of advantages of mouthbrooding is that there is a greater chance of the young surviving into adulthood. But the downside is that meals must be skipped!

Origami ~ House, Cup, Pinwheel, & Piano

I made some origami a few days ago - a house, a cup, a pinwheel, and a piano!


My piano is sooooo beautiful so I'll show a closeup of it :D :D :D


I even made a songbook for it! Looks like this since I didn't want to actually draw musical notes, lol. ;)

Swooping in for a landing, an Atlantic puffin brings a meal for its chick on Scotland’s Treshnish Isles. Puffin parents make up to eight food runs a day; each bird can grip 20 or more fish in its beak.

The photo is part of the feature article, Puffin Therapy which can be found in the June issue of National Geographic Magazine.

This Baby Goat was Born with Six Legs!

See here: http://www.cbc.ca/kids/the-feed/this-kid-has-eight-legs


An eight-legged goat was born on a farm in Croatia last week and earned the nickname Octogoat.

The goat has both male and female reproductive organs which was likely the result of an underdeveloped twin. Veterinarians have said Octogoat may have a chance of living for several years.

Hi-Yo Silver! Away!

If you've ever watched The Lone Ranger you have probably heard that "Hi-Yo Silver! Away!" when the lone Ranger and Tonto ride off after upholding the law. I just finished watching 6 episodes of the 1949 TV show (Only 1 was in color but who cares?) and that got me wondering - what type of horse was Silver? What was his real name?


Well, there were two Silvers! Silver 1 was part Tennessee Walking horse and his real name was White Cloud. Silver 2 was half Arabian and half Saddle Bred. His real name was Tarzan's White Banner but when George W. Trendle, the owner of The Lone Ranger bought him, Trendle renamed him Hi-Yo Silver!

Sorry, I could not find one of just Tonto and Scout - Tonto and Scout are on the right side. The internet was being very annoying so I could not find anything out about Scout other than that he was a Paint horse. : (
