How are you feeling this week? Which of these iconic Chilean wildlife personalities best describe your quarantine coping strategy?
Pengüino Humbold (Humbolt Penguin): Cuddly. All cozy with your loved ones in your burrow. Occasional forays for fish.
Condor: Distant. Flying above the fray, diving in hourly for the latest worldwide stats.
Monito del Monte (Colocolo Opossum): Torpor. Napping motionless by day, the Colocolo opossum emerges only at night when there is enough food.
Picaflor (Hummingbird): Busy. Your wings never stop fluttering; nesting, harvesting nectar, brooding the chicks.
Chungungo (Otter): Playful. Games, physical activity, and the joy of good company.
Guanaco (wild llama cousin): Jumpy. Leaping over fences in a single bound to avoid contact.
Puma: Snarly. Stay two meters away or I will bite. Growl.
Yesterday I alternated between Puma and Monito del Monte. Today I’m feeling more Otterish.
Which animal do you identify with, of these seven? Does your outlook change with the day?
