Top Ten Animals
Advantages: Amazing to watch
Disadvantages: Do not get too close
I am basing my top ten animals on animals I have always enjoyed watching. I am not including pets but animals that we would generally class as wild.
10. The Fox.
These animals get either a good rap as either clever cunning animals or as a pest. Me I will always put them in the cunning sly animals. These animals have adapted to living in the city when most animals cant cope and leave. I live in the middle of a town and every night they come into our street. In fact we once put food in a dish for one of our cats when the fox came and shared the food with the cat and they did not bother each other. Obviously the cats being out at night they get used to each other and became friends.
9. The Black Panther.
The reason this is in my top ten is because a few years ago I was watching one of sir Richards programs and I saw one taking on a anaconda and winning. To describe it would be to do it a disservice. So you will just have to trust me.
8. The Falcon.
My favourite bird is a bird of pray and in my mind the best is the falcon. Its majestic beauty in flight is a awesome sight .
7. The Red squirell.
I am putting this in front of the grey because it is a native of these isles and has been pushed to extinction by the introduction of the grey. I have nothing against the grey but I think we should be pushing the red more.
And lets be honest it does look better.
6. The Great White Shark.
Again like the fox gets a bad rap when it has been misunderstood. Most of the attacks are done on surfers. When they look up they mistake a surfer for a seal and they attack, but majority of the time once they realise that it is not a seal they let go. And lets be honest the sea is where they live and we know this so we cannot complain if they attack you.
5. The snake
I am putting all snakes in this. When I first went to Australia my aunty said to me whatever you do be careful in that long grass at the bottom of the garden. She said the snake has seen you long before you have seen it and will just move away. Snakes do no go looking to attack humans and have not any intention. They attack for food and only eat once every couple of months and so they are not going to waste their energy on attacking us.
4. The duck bill platypus.
This animal as always caught my imagination both in appearance and character. As you can tell from the name it as a beak, webbed feet, and fur and is a mammal. And lives in fresh streams. It is comical in look and when it is out of water it looks uncomfortable buy once in water in moves as good as any seal.
3. The Tiger
I know that the lion is classed as the king of the jungle, but is there any more better looking animal it is the royalty of the cats. And it is fearless and uncomprimising in style. If this was pet I believe that cats and dogs would not get a look in. And who would rob any houses if these were pets.
2. The Panda
I am only putting this in because it is endangered and needs all the support it can get. So I would urge every member here to donate to any causes that help any endabgered species.
1. The killer Whale (Orca)
This is known as the wolf of the sea it hunts in packs chasing all the way onto the beach and generally wins. If you ever want to watch a film get film called Orca killer whale. This stars Richard Harris and Bo Derek this is about a whale who go after Richard Harris, I am not giving the full story away but I promise by the end you will be on the killer whales side.
Just to close I just want to say that these and any other animals need our support and help in surviving. We put all the animals on the endangered list and it is upto us to help them. So again please do everything you can to help.
Finally I would like to wish everyone all the best.
Summary: Put these in any Richard Attenborough Program and everybody will go aagh aint they cute
