Sardines are named after the Italian island Sardinia. But sardines are not strictly Italian. Sardines swim in many seas almost all over the world. Sardines are toothless “filter feeders” so they eat mostly plankton. When they are not canned, sandwiched or put into Worcestershire sauce, sardines can live up to 8 to 14 years. “Life is like a box of sardines and we are all looking for the key.” — Alan Bennett Post published:23/11/2018 Post category:Animals Post author:Melora Carabas Read more articles Previous PostMaize Day Next PostBlack Friday You Might Also Like Hug A Sheep Day 25/10/2019 Fancy Rat & Mouse Day 11/11/2019 World Animal Day 03/10/2020 Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act 27/12/2019 Reptile Awareness Day 20/10/2018 Hagfish Day 16/10/2018 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
