Fun FactScotland loves its myths and legends. In fact, its national animal is…the unicorn! Supposedly it was chosen, because the unicorn was thought to be a brave and powerful animal, as well as being the natural enemy of the lion, which just happens to be the national animal of…England. The unicorn and the lion now appear together on the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom and Canada.
