This very long week I learned about California Condors and Gento Penguins.
While I was watching videos of the Gento Penguin on youtube I learned that they catapult them selves out of the water by holding air under there feters and releasing it when they want out of the water.
here is a video of the way penguins get out of the water.
California condors are pretty normal because they have a lot of similarities with the Turkey Voltures. Like they are both scavengers and there both in the Raptor Family.
The Raptor family is any bird that has this list:
- Eyes in front of it’s head.
- Sharp Talons.
- A long Sharo Beak.
Here is a list of worlds Raptors:
Today half of all Raptors are endangered today sadly and one of the reasons California Condors are protected is because when a farm animals dies they go to where the farmer put it and while there eating the farmers shoot at the condors. So now there are only 1 million california condors left in the wild.
So that’s it on my Lesson for this week.
