I wouldn't say no to a butterbeer either!

Which of these is true about the polar bear?

Seals make up most of a polar bear's diet and they spend most of their time at sea!

Tell us a little bit about yourself, answer some holiday-themed questions, and let us tell you what festive creature you're most like! 

Some of our favourite festive animals include:

1. The reindeer

Of course, there can be no list of festive animals without featuring reindeer. Did you know that both male and female reindeer have antlers and that they shed their antlers every year to grow a new set? How cool is that?!


2. The goat

The Yule Goat is a Scandinavian and Northern European Yule and Christmas symbol and tradition. Did you know that goats have rectangular pupils? They can see 320 to 340 degrees in their periphery—everything except for what’s directly behind them!  


3. The narwhal

Okay, we're not completely certain any body else considers narwhals festive at all but we do! Narwhals are also know as 'unicorns of the sea' because of their tusks (which can grow up to 10 feet in length, and we have no idea what they're for!), and they're only found in the frigid arctic. Here's our favourite narwhal fact - there are no narwhals in captivity!


4. The kangaroo

Our friends down under spend a rather warm festive season and according to the Australian Christmas song ‘Six White Boomers’, it’s kangaroos who pull Santa’s sleigh rather than reindeer. Did you know that kangaroos cannot move backwards? 


5. The polar bear 

No surprises here with another snowy favourite! But did you know that beneath all that thick fur, their skin is actually jet black?
