It says practical, productive, independent and a leader. I know i am very independent and Natural leader, but in reality, no matter how much i want it to be real, i'm not always productive and practical. The words my dad choose really opened up my eyes that i am more like the otter than i care to admit. I do like to mess around and put things off but i do get the job done. So in that i Belive me and my grandmother were wrong. Now for weakness i choose the Golden retriever not necessary for the fact that it's 100% true, i am selfish, a procrastinator, but mostly because all the other ones just by the words are very cruel and i don't want that to represent me. With all the answer that were given too me, I think my dad is right, everything he said is true about me, again, weather i want to admit it or not, and i also believe that my Aunt was right in her thought process just not the animal she picked. She did think the same things as my Dad just put the wrong label on

    Moreover, the most intriguing thing about this type of behaviour is that it is not taught. Male tigers are aloof and solitary animals who start hunting for prey at a very young age, and the fact that they learn sharing and fairness on their own is very commendable. This demonstrates that the tiger understands the meaning of sacrifice and the habit of putting others first. It knows that this is not a sign of weakness but an intrinsic strength. The ‘king of the beasts’, who is capable of beating the lion on its own, provides an exemplary lesson here to all of us, and the sooner all of us learn it, the better.…

    The day we were brought into this world, we were given genetics and a unique identity. All which come to play in our everyday decision making. Finally, the ending quote says, “I wish for you[r] unshakeable faith in a wisdom that will outlive the springbok or the lion, you or me, my love for you, huge as it is, and the air’s apparent kindness as it kills.” By having a strong faith, we can survive in life without having to ever be a springbok or a lion. We must be smart to not be the lion, and learn to not position anybody into bad circumstances they must crawl out of. We also don’t have to put ourselves in situations we don’t want to be in like the springbok if we’re careful and clever.…

    The older females will harass them, forcing them into some fights, and making their life very uncomfortable for them. If the females can stand up to such treatment, and they decide to stay in their current pride, then they are eventually accepted by the others, as to become part of a leading male's harem. Though, if they can’t stand the harassment, they leave the pride and become nomads (loners). These females wander until they are accepted by another pride, which is very rare, or become part of a new pride under another nomad male lion. Once settled down in a secure pride position, lions live the rest of their lives in a predictable cycle.…

    Jul 27, 2016- I gave up biology in high school. For a guy like me, who possibly draws the worst diagrams and finds it difficult to memorise even the characteristics of phylum, biology was not my cup of tea. But my love and interest for animals have always been the same—entirely pure and spontaneous. Nature’s creations are one of the things that astound me the most; nature is a perpetual source for divine creativity of which I am only a mere admirer and a weak connoisseur. The creation of tigers, an awesome creature like so many others on earth, is the point where nature’s brilliance and perfection pleasantly exist with harmony.…

    The statement from the passage is a reminder that since a lion takes care of cubs that are not even hers, a dog will defiantly do the same with a litter of kittens. Just like the lion, dogs are also known to have a very strong parental instinct. Dogs will sometimes take care of puppies that are not theirs. Another example would be in the second passage called "Unusual Animal Friendships" where it talks of an owl being protected by a dog. In the text, it specifically states," The handler says that Torque is very protective of Shrek."…

    Another interesting animal was Harpy Eagle who was also rescued and although it had been trained to hunt (I think), it preferred to be around people like us, who visit the zoo. Harpy is one of the worlds largest. I really enjoyed seeing a group of our TAMUK girls go in the Jaguar cage. I was impressed by how trained the Jaguar is. The zoo employee was very good with the Jaguar.…
