Everyone has been asking what life is like at Itty Bitty Animaland. It really is a crazy place with pigs, horses, giraffes, and penguins all interacting with each other. All the animals are bemoaning the fact that we have no more llamas! So they have been after me to make some llamas! I have just completed a black and brown horse who looks mighty majestic and am working on a tie-die giraffe. The "peeps" have been multiplying and there are cardinals, robins, bluebirds and other exotic birds that don't even have a name! Now, add to that a box full of sheep. Sheep are so demanding - "Where's my food?" "Where are you taking us?" "Get us out of this box!" "Be more careful when you shear my wool - don't take off too much behind my ears!" So, now you can understand why we keep them in a box. The penguins are more helpful - they are really interested in promoting climate change because they are losing all their ice shelves. This has greatly impacted their ability to gather food and reproduce. But they are not pushy about it, just very concerned. In fact, King Albert was singled out for an interview with PBS in a segment relating to climate change. Social unrest also affects their lives as evidenced by the animals who were found in the Mediterranean in a serving tray! They knew they couldn't stay where they were because of the dangers of losing their lives, lack of food, lack of work. They were so desperate they left some of their family members behind.
So, watch for them - more llamas coming soon!
