Fennec Fox
Red Panda
The Fennec Fox is a small crepuscular fox native to the deserts of North Africa, ranging from western Sahara and Morocco to Sinai Peninsula. Fennec Foxes eat insects, small rodents, lizards, birds and their eggs, and they will also consume roots, fruits, and leaves for hydration. These foxes are considered omnivores because their diet consists of meat and vegetation.
The Red Panda also known as the lesser panda, is a small mammal native to the Eastern Himalayas and Southwestern China. They spend most of their time in trees. The Red Panda is primarily herbivorous but classified as an omnivore. Their diets consist of mainly leaves and bamboo, but occasionally snack on fruit, insects, bird eggs and small lizards.

World's Greatest Mysteries
By Aniyah Dunbar
Legend of Atlantis
The legend of Atlantis had been talked about, whispered, and rumored about for thousands of years. The first discussion of this city was in the 4th century BC in one of Plato's dialogues. It has inspired many writers, poets, and explorers over the years. Many theories explain the location of atlantis in The mediterranean Sea, across the Atlantic Ocean, even antarctica. According to Plato's account, atlantic was located at the Pillars of Hercules which marked the Strait of Gibraltar at the entrance to the Mediterranean -  beyond which was literally the great unknown. The mystery continues to be really a Lost Atlantis. Atlantis, so the story goes, was a powerful naval empire that came to rule much of the land surrounding the Mediterranean; until - according to Plato - they tried to take on the Athenians. Plato, arguably the most famous Athenian in history, reckoned that his people's predecessors handed the Atlanteans a resounding defeat and as if that weren't enough, the island of Atlantis simply sank into the sea, never again to be found.
These are some of a million images of what people think Atlantis looks like.

Fun Dip Valentine

A SweeTart is a special kind of candy that is so little but so flavorful that it fills your entire tongue with joy. The candy starts somewhat sweet before becoming quite sour. The Valentine's Day edition does the same with the SweeTarts being shaped as hearts.

The very first conversation heart was created in 1866 by a man named Daniel Chase. Daniel made a machine that pressed food dye letters onto candy lozenges made famous by his brother, NECCO founder Oliver Chase. Oliver created these lozenges as a pharmacist looking to get in on the apothecary lozenges craze as a remedy for sore throats or bad breath, according to Mental Floss.

Sour Patch Kids Valentine Candy Hearts are mischief-filled "sour then sweet" treats. Soft, chewy, and fun, these Cupid-approved heart-shaped candies come in fun Redberry and Pink Strawberry flavors that'll sweeten your Valentine's Day.

In the beginning, Sour Patch Kids were shaped as martians, to capitalize on the space enthusiasm of the 70’s. They then transformed into children to capitalize on the Cabbage Patch Kids craze of the 1980s. Regardless of their shape, these “sour then sweet” candies were such a huge success.

By 1985, the Mars Men underwent a rebranding to become the Sour Patch Kids and was introduced into the U.S. market by M & A Candy Company.
The Reese's Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Hearts are a little firm and the peanut butter is soft, which makes a great combination. The chocolate has a nice rich chocolate taste and the peanut butter has just the right amount of sweetness to it.

Reese's Pieces were introduced in the UK in 1996, but are produced in the US. Reese's Pieces are a product extension of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups line; they were designed to capitalize on the success of the chocolate-covered peanut butter cups, though unlike the cups, they have no chocolate.

Reese's Peanut Butter Hearts launched nationally in 1997.
A nostalgic candy adored since 1940, Lik-M-Aid Fun Dip contains a fruity, flavor-crystal mix along with a sweet stick—made to be blissfully licked and dipped. Fun Dip showers the mouth with tasty powder that’s irresistibly sugary and mildly sour.

With this Valentines edition Fun Dip, it features tasty and unique flavors like Cherry Yum, Diddly Dip, and RazzApple Magic Dip powders that can be enjoyed as a snack. The signable packaging also makes it great for any valentine exchanges.

The candy has been on the market in the United States and Canada since the 1940s. It was purchased by Nestlé in January 1989.
Although Starburst FaveReds doesn't scream "Valentine's Day", it's one of the more iconic and enjoyable soft taffy candies out there. Fortunately, this exclusive edition of Starburst can fit in the Valentine's Day theme as it consists of only the juicy red flavors—strawberry, fruit punch, watermelon, and cherry—together in one pack.

The Starburst brand was introduced in England in 1959. They were first known as Opal Fruits, the name coming from the result of a competition. The four original flavors were strawberry, lemon, orange, and lime. In 1967, Opal Fruits were brought to the United States and the name was changed to Starburst.

Information about zodiac sign
According to,"zodiac, in astronomy and astrology, a belt around the heavens extending 9° on either side of the ecliptic, the plane of Earth’s orbit and of the Sun’s apparent annual path. The orbits of the Moon and of the principal planets also lie entirely within the zodiac. The 12 astrological signs of the zodiac are each considered to occupy 1/12 (or 30°) of its great circle.These signs no longer correspond to the astronomical constellations in which the Sun actually appears. The constellations are irregular in size and shape, and the Sun regularly passes through one constellation (Ophiuchus) that is not considered a member of the zodiac".
