Dolphins — do you know anybody who doesn’t like them? So cute, so amazing and funny — that’s what they are. What’s more — they’re absolutely intelligent and talented! Can I say that they’re just fabulous animals?
Have any of you swum with dolphins? Can you describe this feeling for those who haven’t had so much fortune to do that (yet)? I hope I will try one day!
The Moon — something that, wherever you are, it’s beautiful. Even though it’s so far away from us, we can still admire its beauty in solitude or at a date. Some of us would like to make a step on the Moon, some of us want to look at it from distance — however, it’s always something that we call amazing, mysterious, or adorable.
Ferrets? AWESOME! They’re getting more and more popular as pets, and that’s nothing surprising! They’re not so easy to live with — you have to be very patient. However, they’re great friends with whom you can have a lot of fun! Today, you can see ferrets in the bathroom, in the snow, white ferrets, and others. They’re all cool, beautiful, just gorgeous.
Delonix regia is an awesome tree that look like it’s burning. In Spanish it’s called “Flamboyán” — that seems to really fit it. Flamboyan is a breathtaking tree worth looking at for hours! There’s nothing what will explain the beauty of that tree to you — just look at it!
Why have I chosen the platypus? Because it’s a pretty awesome animal — I think it’s one of the most unusual creatures in the world! Moreover, when I was young I got a book about nature. I guess I wasn’t very aware of the existence of more animals than just common pets, but in that book I discovered something unbelievable! It was the platypus. I still remember that moment when I read about it, and when I was learning in school that mammals are animals which don’t have the ability of oviparity, I thought, “All right, but you forget about the platypus!”
Kangaroos are very interesting animals to many of us because of their unique appearance and their rarity (in most parts of the world). I suppose that in cartoons kangaroos are always the boxers, but I think their not so bad! I think that kangaroos are beautiful and not many people in the world will ever see a kangaroo in their life. But don’t worry! We’ve got photos!
