Where I live, there are no penguins. I just see them on TV and images.
I do not like to have any of them as a pet, especially the cockroach, the flea, the millipede and the spider...

When I was a child I used to play insects such ant, frog, spider and even snakes. One day a scorpion had bitten me while I sleep. Since that day I'm afraid of scorpions and other toxic animals. But I don't hate them. Some people kill them because of their fears. This situation makes me sad. I believe that all tne creatures have right of life.

No, I don't like to have any animal as a pet, we used to have a dog at my parents' house and I think taking care of a pet is a huge responsibility. It is something you should do from the heart, with love and affection. Budgies, doves and penguins are so beautiul, and I really enjoy watching them but I hate seeing birds kept in cages..

Submitted by Pola on Mon, 21/09/2020 - 17:40

Yes, I can see some of them everyday. Some birds they are living in the nests, and the cockroaches are live in sewers, and the fleas are living in the air, whereas the crabs, penguins, frogs are living nearby the water, and which are living on the roof and wall that are the spiders. I can take the budgie as a pet, but it lives in a cage at home, it is very nice bird and can to talk with owner fluently.

Is this all the words, or am I missing something?

Hello want-to-know,

This list of animals goes together with our Farm animals and Wild animals lists. There of course are many, many more animal names and general vocabulary you could learn, but with these three lists you have a start.

All the best,

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!

Submitted by Daudau0601 on Sat, 04/04/2020 - 15:49

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.

Submitted by Ammaraf on Wed, 26/02/2020 - 14:36

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.
