Our next gigantic animal in the limelight is the beautiful and soulful whale!
We all dream of seeing a whale in the wild - jumping out of the water playfully. In reality they are usually naturally shy creatures which unless you are really looking or on a specific whale spotting trip you don't get to see them. If you have been lucky enough to ever see one in the wild then you will appreciate just how big whales are and how exciting it is to witness one in it's own habitat.
Our next animal in the limelight is the elegant seahorse!
Not only is the seahorse very pretty they are also very quirky and behave very differently to other types of fish. For a start they are really poor swimmers! They are the slowest moving of all types of fish because they only have a tiny fin in the middle of their backs to move forwards with. They move at a snails pace of around 1.5m per minute.
Here at Tikiri we have a strong company belief that children's eduction is off the upmost importance.
One of the main reasons we chose to create our children's teething toys as animals is we not only wanted them to help soothe teething symptoms but we also wanted to be used for educational purposes too. You can learn so much from animals and we have tired to portray that in out animal fun facts series on our blog.
