Savannah the Crowned Crane


The grey crowned crane is the national bird of Uganda and is considered sacred in several southern and eastern African countries. While cranes are elegant in flight, they are also fast runners and can even swim.

Savannah gets her name from the open grasslands of the African veldt. She is a scholarly scientist who is an expert on the flora and fauna of the continent. Contrary to her lineage, Savannah the Crowned Crane is a bit clumsy in flight and on land.
