Hey, guys! Sorry I didn’t really post for a few days. I’ve just been busy with homework and stuff. Anyways, let’s jump to the topic, guys!
So you know how people dislike some animals? I was inspired to write this story because a boy from my church came up to me, and showed me a shell of a dead cockroach. I was like, “Cool!!” And my friend, who was with me, screamed and ran away. I am not afraid of cockroaches, like most people are, and I feel that is it mainly because I like animals of all kinds! Sure, there are some that I dislike, but I still try my best to love them all equally. So here are some animals that most people are afraid of:
Sharks are a very important part of the marine ecosystem. They help keep down the population of seals and other prey, plus they are really beautiful to look at! They won’t attack you unless you disturb them first or they accidentally mistake for a seal or some other prey.
I wanted to put these cute creatures down on this list because most people think that bats are bloodsucking creatures and carry rabies. This is not true. The only bat that sucks blood is the vampire bat, and it doesn’t suck blood from humans. It only sucks blood from cows, sheep, and other livestock. Bats are very helpful little creatures, and they are very helpful with keeping the mosquito population down. A bat can catch one thousand mosquitoes in a hour!
Snakes are very interesting and intriguing to look at when you look at them from a safe distance. They also help keep the mouse population down, so whenever your dad or mom wants to kill one, tell them not to because if they want to see the mice dwindle, they better let the snake live!! King snakes are especially good, because they actually eat rattlesnakes. Rattlesnakes, by the way, will not attack you unless you disturb them or provoke them. And they usually give you a warning too, before they strike. All in all, give rattlesnakes, and just snakes in general, their space.
Now I know people dislike skunks because of their defense, which is spraying their victim with a very stinky smell. But honestly, I think skunks are cute, and besides, they only spray people or animals when they feel threatened. They also give you three warnings before spraying you: 1) He chatters and stomps the ground with his feet. 2) It raises its tail and hisses, sometimes running towards you. 3) It does a handstand and aims. If the victim still comes, it sprays!
It might seem funny that a skunk would do a handstand, but they do! So just give animals their space, and they will leave you alone! It’s important that we keep our planet clean and alive! You guys, please don’t litter on the beach! I am so angry and frustrated by how people just throw bottles and plastic objects in the sand and don’t even bother to pick it up! Whenever I can, I always pick trash off the beach while we are walking, and I always throw it away. Little actions can help tremendously, and the oceans desperately need our help. If we enjoy surfing and lounging on the beach, and we continue to throw trash in the ocean and we don’t something about it now, the oceans will become a living trash dump, and we really don’t want that to happen. So guys, PLEASE, PLEASE, keep our planet clean so we can live freely on it! It’s extremely important and even just picking up trash in a park or on a beach when you have time can help a lot! Anyways, I have to go brush my teeth and practice flute and do math. UGHHHHH. I HATE SCHOOL IN SUMMER. OK, bye!
