  • Gobble Gobble
  • Hi I'm the turkey. I'm one of the first domesticated animals in the Americas. The ancient Aztecs called me Melleagris Gallopavo or Huexolotin.
  • I am Native to the Americas
  • The Aztecs had two special religious festivals a year for turkeys! The natives used turkey feathers for necklaces, head adornments, and arrows.
  • The Myans also used parts of turkeys for ancient ceremonies.
  • The Spaniards soon carried the savored "el pavo" (Turkey) back to Europe.
  • Once the Spanish conquered the Aztecs they discovered the turkey on the Aztecs land.
  • Once the Spainards took me to Europe I quickly became a popular, nutritious food source.
  • And today I am normally feasted on, on Thanksgiving!
