Hello! I'm a kestrel and I've a got a great view from our nest. My mummy is flying around here, somewhere. Kestrels are predators, which means we eat meat. But we only hunt for things that are smaller than us, such as voles, mice, and even some insects. We settle in hollow trees or something similar and lay our eggs. From that point, it takes less than a month for our little kestrels to hatch.
In the seahorse family, it is the daddy who gives birth to us. He carries us in his sac, until we hatch from the eggs our mommy lay into his sac. There are various species of seahorse.
