Arctic animal of the day 27: the raven

Arctic animal of the day 27. Perhaps not the most beautiful Arctic animal in a ‘conventional’ sense (but then again who defines beauty), today it’s the common raven (Corvus corax). You will regularly see ravens in Scotland and across the world, but they are also found throughout the Arctic. The common raven may be one of the hardiest species on earth. Whilst some may consider this bird a pest, its ability to tolerate some of the most extreme temperatures and temperature ranges on the planet, actually makes it pretty special and unique! Ravens also eat almost anything they can get, helping them to survive in hard Arctic environments. The common raven is thought to mate for life, forming pairs that will never separate. Aww!! 🙂
