I LOVE roadrunners. I used to volunteer at an animal sanctuary/educational center, and helped take care of this one roadrunner named Chevy. He was a zippy little dude, but they make a sound more like a purring motor or a little “revving” sound. It’s really cute. I also caught him doing a mating call which he was very particular about, 7 “coos” in descending pitch.

I tried to catch him doing wall jumps on video, but I was never successful.

Anyways, I love this.

Oh man, that’s GREAT! Though I should imagine the pants situation’s a bit awkward for them (and kilts would be worse.) I love roadrunners; living out in the Sonoran Desert, I see them a lot– they’re amazingly cute and unkempt-looking when they’re young fledglings, their feathers stick out EVERYWHERE. Smart, too– when I worked in NV at the Clark County Water Treatment plant, there was one who’d pretty much trained everybody who ate lunch at a particular picnic table outside to feed him (including myself.) He loved Ritz Crackers hugely, and would make this weird little zipper-noise of appreciation when you gave him one.

Just how rare are male harpies, male Grecian sphinxes, and female Egyptian sphinxes? AKA, in a race/species that’s primarily known for being of a single sex, how often does a creature of the lesser seen sex occur? I imagine they might be pretty popular with others of their kind, even if they are unusual.
