Block #6 features another unique animal, but one that I can say I have actually seen in person! The quetzal is a BEAUTIFUL bird that I was lucky enough to spot while I was studying in Costa Rica. So, although it isn't very well known, I had to include it in my project. If there are any other animal lovers out there like me that want to learn more about these birds, here is a National Geographic web page with a bit of info about them 🙂
