Xenarthrans

Written for:  Blogging From A to Z

xenarthrans

Xenarthrans are not part
of life in our country.
Fifty-nine million years
ago, they appeared in
South America, part of
the group of armadillos,
anteaters, and the ever
popular sloth. Unique
joints include extra
spinal cords in their
lower spines. Although
they have low metabolisms
and small brains, they get
along just fine with their
large claws for digging
or climbing. Sadly,
xenarthrans have only
singular vision.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
