5 a day - 27th May

5 a day

 

Today it's an animal special - Xiosa the marathon dog, the new penguin parents that are subverting a zoo and something special on a treadmill!

 

Like 5 a day? Want daily reminders?

5aday2.png How clever! This is no ordinary fish. This is a robo-fish! It explores the ocean detecting leakages from ships and pipes. I bet it never needs feeding either.

5aday3.png Love knows no bounds. Two male penguins who have been nesting together for six years have finally been trusted with an egg to care for. Inca has taken his share of the work by incubating the egg, whilst Rayas has been standing guard and filling his tummy up for regurgitation later. Love is wonderful, don't you think?

5aday4.png My mum always told me not to start feeding strays, or they'd start following me home. Seems there was some truth to it after all! Xiaosa is a sweet little stray dog who started following some cyclists after they fed him. Little did he know they were taking part in a 1,700 km long bike ride.

Do you have a catway? What's a catway? About 5-10 pounds. Oh you!

Do you think the Robo-Fish could also work in swimming pools too?

I could see a distinct advantage, in it being able to detect "human pollution", in the local pool... Smiley Wink
