True or False: The American Robin is a thrush, not a robin.
True! The American Robin is the largest thrush in North America. It was given its name by early settlers who thought the bird resembled the English Robin – a small, brown European bird. However, except for the reddish colour of its breast, the American Robin doesn’t really resemble the English Robin and is actually a thrush.
Nope! Try again.
Correct answer: C. Right Whales chow down on zooplankton or tiny animals that look like shrimp. And they eat a lot of it – up to 1,100 kilograms in one day! They get that much grub in by opening up their mouths wide and swimming through the water, catching their prey as they go. With that much food, it’s no wonder that they’re really large animals – weighing in at 63,500 kilograms and as long as 16 metres.
