So, as I was checking the Olympic Web site, I noticed there were three animal mascots for the Winter Olympics.
Apparently, there is a sasquatch, an animal spirit, and a young sea bear. Here are the descriptions provided:
“Quatchi is a young sasquatch who comes from the mysterious forests of Canada. Quatchi is shy, but loves to explore new places and meet new friends.”
“Sumi is an animal spirit who lives in the mountains of British Columbia. Like many Canadians, Sumi’s background is drawn from many places. He wears the hat of the orca whale, flies with the wings of the mighty thunderbird and runs on the strong furry legs of the black bear.”
“Miga is a young sea bear who lives in the ocean with her family pod, beyond Vancouver Island, near Tofino, British Columbia. Sea bears are part killer whale and part bear. (Miga is part Kermode bear, a rare white bear that only lives in British Columbia.)”
Hope everyone enjoyed the Winter Olympics!
