BaF 12, Let’s learn about Swans! A female swan is called a “Pen,” which is where the term “Pen ink” comes from. This comes from the ink that a female swan will emit to escape predators, which was once harvested for use writing and drawing.
Side bar: sorry about missing a week or two of animal facts. I’ll be at Mass MICE in a few days, which is exciting, but makes me a little nervous too. The first 12 BaF pages will be collected in a book for the show. It might be a couple weeks before another BaF comes out, as I’ll be away from home, and when I return I’d like to build up a backlog. Thanks for supporting the series so far, I really appreciate it!
