LETHBRIDQE June Ask Andy Your horoscope By Jeane Oixon Andy sends a seven-volume set of The Chronicles of Narnia to Micnele Day, age 7, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, for her question Why does a whale spout water? The whale's spout looks for all the world like a fountain of water But it really is a fountain of foamy steam It so happens that the seagoing giant cannot breathe under water He has lungs to breathe air, just as we do This means that he can stay below only as long as he can hold his breath Then he must come up to breathe out and fill his great lungs with another helping of fresh air The whale's big spongy lungs are warm and moist This is where he holds each breath for half an hour or so Naturally, the air down there gets moist and steamy When he comes up to empty his lungs this moist steamy air is puffed up like a fountain Though from a distance it looks like a fountain of water, actually it is a plume of foamy steam Andy sends a complete seven-volume set of The Chronicles of Narnia to Shareen Finucan, age 10, of Montreal, Quebec, for her question How many horse species are there1' You may think that there are dozens of different horse species But the scientists who classify the animal kingdom say that there are only six To scientists a species is a group of animals that breed with each other but not with members of other species All our dom-estic horses descended from the same two or three' wild species Eventually, our tame pintos and palammos, shire horses and Shetland ponies became different breeds of the same species All the world s horses belong in the family Equidae and the genus group Equus Five of the six species are divided into smaller groups called subspecies Most of the wild asses belong to one species, with several subspecies Most of the zebras belong to the same species, with several subspecies The only horsy type with a genus of his own is a stripy fellow called Grevy's zebra Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
