What I Learned

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:

  1. Eyes in front of it’s head.
  2. Sharp Talons.
  3. A long Sharo Beak.
Sharp Beak
Sharp Talons

Eyes In front of the head.

Here is a list of worlds Raptors:

  • Owls
  • Eagles
  • Vultures
  • Condors
  • Falcons
  • Hawks

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.
