A Phoenix is a myth but I think that would be a great creature for Avadopts. Smile
Katara only called sokka a ponytail guy because he had a ponytail not because there was some kind of pony in avatar TLA that had a tail that looked like Sokka's hair. o3o
If no ponies, then why call it a pony tail? Why not call it a horsetail? There HAS to be ponies! They would not just make up a random word and use it for a hair style. Why not a pony in the avatar world? They have ostrich horses and we have horses, so maybe they have ostrich ponies?

I'd rather not have a pony since those are what horses are when they are babies, we don't have any other creature on Avadopts like that.

No, ponies are different from horses. Baby horses are foals.

"Ponies" is often used to refer to baby horses, but they're also a very small and stocky breed of horse. /ninja'd.
Foals, Colts and Fillies, to be complete.

BUT they can't go making up new words just because the origin for one doesn't exist in that world--where'd they get the "horse" from ostrich horse if there are no plain horses, or labyrinth if they didn't have Greece to provide that legend? I'm going to assume that members of a parallel universe don't coincidentally all speak English and that when we watch a cartoon taking place in such a world that things spoken in English are just automatically translated. Ponies are not themselves referenced, so no, I don't think we should make them.

"Hippos" themselves are not referenced, yet they are on the list. So why can't ponies be on the list when hippos are?
