One I think We All Know… the Egyptian Goose.

This bird or goose seems to have entrenched itself all over the world… this might have been because it was taken to places it not normally habituates…. But one thing is for sure it is pretty well entrenched all over Africa…

This goose is not loved by all, very few in fact, but shame I thought I’d give it a little publicity…

The Egyptian Goose…

The Egyptian Goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus) is a member of the duck, goose, and swan family Anatidae. It is native to Africa south of the Sahara and the Nile Valley, and has been introduced to parts of Western Europe.

Egyptian Geese were considered sacred by the ancient Egyptians, and appeared in much of their artwork.
