Description of My Alien
Plutón is a friendly one foot tall alien who loves to jump around! Plutón's name is a Spanish word for Pluto. Since Plutón lives on Pluto, he must be able to survive in cold weather. After living on Pluto for all his life now, Plutón has adapted very well to his cold environment. Plutón wanted to keep warm, and he spotted a red,white, and blue "coat" on a stick. So he explored until he got to the moon, and took the "coat" of the stick He wore it as a jacket for three years, and it kept him warm through those long years. He always wished to have fur, so he could keep extra warm during the freezing, icy nights. Finally, after four years of waiting, Plutón achieved his goal, and grew fur! Plutón has a light on his head to lead the way at night, just like an Angler Fish, also the light makes him look scarier to ward of other bigger aliens trying to harm him.
Plutón is a consumer. He goes space exploring and "swims" through outer space as he scrounges for food left by astronauts. Plutón feeds on ice, but mostly the food left by other astronauts in space. Astronauts feed on my alien, because when they go into space, the try and catch him along with other aliens, to test on them and their species!
•Pluto is named after the Greek god of the underworld.
• Pluto may be the largest dwarf planet, or it could be Eris!
