North American country located in the northern part of the continent. Canada is the world's second-largest country by total area, and its common border with the United States is the world's longest land border.
*Who says size doesn't matter?*
Some fun facts:
1. The Narcisse Snake Dens in Manitoba have more snakes in a concentrated area than anywhere else in the world. Tens of thousands of red-sided garter snakes gather there every year. On the other hand, there are no snakes on the island of Newfoundland.
2. If you visit Dawson City, Yukon, you can join the “Sourtoe Cocktail Club” — all you have to do is finish a drink (of anything!) with a real human toe in the bottom. The club’s motto says, “You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow — but the lips have gotta touch the toe.”
*Okay, I actually really like Canada, we used to visit each year, but the toe, the toe has got to go...*
3. Canada has its own mysterious lake creature, Ogopogo, who reportedly lives in Lake Okanagan, British Columbia.
*A great creature for any book!*
