Answers from a survey on The Leader’s Facebook page.
“What mythical creature would improve the world most if it existed? Why?”
“Something without fangs and claws,” said one reader. “How about a luck dragon.”
The other answers were honest politicians, Bigfoot, dodo, Winnie the Pooh, dragons, and Care Bears.
While dodo birds did at one time exist and are now extinct and there’s a possibility that an honest politician has existed, the majority were mythical.
“What would be the coolest animal to scale up to the size of an elephant? Why?”
Peacock spider, which is a spider from Australia with a peacock-like rear end.
