Swans

Swan is any of various large, long-necked water birds which also includes geese and ducks. The swan is one of the largest, fastest swimming, and fastest flying waterfowl, and one of the longest living birds in general. The swan, which lives up to 19 years in the wild, and can live up to 50 years in captivity, usually mates for life. Swans often are a symbol of love or fidelity because of their long-lasting monogamous relationships. Its graceful swimming has made it a symbol for beauty. Swans also are revered in many religions and cultures,
Swans are found in all continents except Africa and Antarctica. An adult male swan is known as a "cob," while an adult female is a "pen," and a young swan is known as a "cygnet."

There are about six types of swans.

1. Mute Swan -- the entirely white swan that is found mostly in Europe and Asia; this is the type of swan that is revered in a number of cultures and that has been immortalized in The Ugly Ducking and Swan Lake.
2. Black Swan -- found mostly in southern Australia and has been reintroduced into New Zealand
3. Black-necked Swan -- native to South America
4. Trumpeter Swan -- found in North America, particularly in Alaska
5. Whooper Swan -- essentially the European/Asian counterpart to the Trumpeter Swan
6. Tundra Swan -- split into two types (Bewick's Swan and the Whistling Swan); large numbers found in Arctic areas
