In “The X-line”, DuX is the collective name for all ducks, geese and swans.
A duck pond is a beautiful sight. The splendid colours and the variety of shapes means you'll never tire of looking at it.
Geese make a huge racket when a stranger comes onto your property. They are the ideal intruder alarm!
When it comes to ducks, most people are familiar with the anatini (dabbling ducks), diving ducks and fulvous whistling ducks. But, there is also the group of scoters (sea ducks).
Geese are more heavily built and their legs are positioned more in the centre of their bodies, enabling them to walk faster. The biggest difference between these and ducks is the beak, which is conical in the case of geese. (insert images here)
Swans are graceful animals and are by far the biggest in this category. Swans are very loyal and they often stay with their partners for life. The standard varieties are white, black and black-necked swans.
