My family used to have a huge cage where a number of bugies were kept. They were given water, green vegetables, and seeds. One night, a cat attacked the cage and some bugies and chicks were gone. It was a tragedy!

yes i can see some of these animals where i live, especially insects. i usually see cockroach and beetle on a floor, millipede on the ground in the garden. Sometimes i see frogs near the lake, I'm really afraid of them. I've never seen penguin. I like having a couple dove as a pet because they symbolize peace.

Yes off course as a pet like cat or maybe fish I think it is better the budgie in cage, all animals are good in the ranch but not in the house.

A while ago, on my way to a library, I saw a girl capturing a turtle in a butterfly net around a pond. I heard a woman walking behind me saying "Oh... poor tutle! Kids shouldn't play with animals in such a way!...but I have no courage to tell them to stop". When I came around the place again, I saw a crowd of people looking at the girl who was trying to leave the big turtle in the net into the water but the turtle wouldn't come out. A young man approached her to try in the same way. It was so wierd to me because nobody tried to touch the turtle. Eventually, I said, "Shall I set it free with my hands?" and did it in a moment. Some of the bystanders said to me "Thank you very much!!"
A turtle is not so dangerous and I got strange feelings.

Yes, I can see some of them such as beetle, cockroach, frog, dove, and budgie.
I do not like to have them as a pet.

Where I live there are animals as a budgies, swallows, spiders and frogs. In addition, there are a lot of insects such as cockroach, millipede and beetles. In my opinion birds must be in freedom, not in cages.

I totally agree with you, to me birds are only beautiful when they can open and close their wings, fly from a tree to an other and live free. So I couldn't have a bird as a pet.

We have not sea or ocean , thats why we have not crab, penguin. I see beetle , frog very rarely. When my sun was a little i had budgie, he liked them very much, but he is allergic, and doctor recommended me not to keep them. I gave them to my brother.

I saw spider many times. I m very scared cockroach. millipede is a dangerous insect. the beetle is a common insect all people easily see this insect.

Hi, only like an aclaration the milipedes are not dangerous. First this animals are arthropods, their group is call myriapods not insects, and there are not dangerous. Instead off, their sister group the chilopods, some species of these are dangerous.
Good day.
