Taking a…tern on the catwalk is one of the world’s most fascinating seabirds, the…what else? Tern! What makes the bird so interesting? It’s not his diet – he eats mostly fish and tiny marine invertebrates, after all. But he has the largest migration range of any animal in the world. The average tern travels about 70,900 kilometers (or 44,300 miles) each year. If he were a human, can you imagine how many frequent flier miles he would have racked up? Wow! Because the Arctic Tern travels so far, and so often, it sees two summers a year, and it enjoys the most daylight of any animal on the planet. Now how cool is that?
Terns are social animals, which is just as well, there are over a million of them around the world. Like some other birds, the Arctic Tern mates for life, and amazingly enough, considering their huge migration pattern, they often return to the same place every year to mate and raise chicks. Like salmon, whales, and sea turtles, who travel all over the world as well, their ability to home in on one specific spot on our big blue ball is just astounding. Aurora, as with all its toys, brings home quality and many potential happy memories with this 100% kid-safe and durable plush toy. At eight inches long, this cute little fellow is just the right size for cuddling.
