The Birds and the Bees

I was thinking; when people want to explain to kids about how babies are made but don’t want to go into all the grisly details, they talk about the birds and the bees.
It doesn’t really make much sense though if you think about it. Avians and insects.
So I drew what might actually result from such a mismatch if The Birds and the Bees really did produce offspring.

The Monguin

Even a war between the monkeys and the penguins couldn’t halt the course of true love and so it came to pass in the fullness of time that a child was born, or possibly hatched, of their forbidden passion.
A prodgeny that maybe some day would be destined to unite their warring species and end the conflict forever.

Or maybe it would just freeze to death on an ice-flow.
