The National Animal

DSCF9715

Hi, fellow travellers!

The Scottish National Animal is the Unicorn.

There are two versions about why they’ve chosen this mythological animal.

The lion is the English national animal and, according to an old tale, the Unicorn beat the Lion, so it’s a great metaphor given the rivalry existent between both countries.

The second version is just because Scottish have a great sense of humour and that’s why decided to adopt an inexistant animal to represent them.
