Soccer and animals of the Netherlands


This video is from Dutch nature conservation organization Natuurmonumenten.

Tonight, at the European football championship, the Dutch team will play its first match, against Italy.

The team colour is orange.

The Natuurmonumenten video has a football melody by the late Dutch singer André Hazes, as “sung” by various wild animals living in the Netherlands, with (more or less) the colour orange in their skin or feathers.

With some, the connection is a bit vague, like with the black woodpecker, black with a red, not orange, crown on its head.

Nevertheless, interesesting video.

Dutch orange marine invertebrates: here.
