Animal Presentations

Today we started listening to everyone's presentations about animals. Everyone listened really well and asked interesting questions.

We learnt about pandas who are blind when they are born -  they eat bamboo and sometimes small animals and birds.

Leopards are the strongest of the big cats and they sometimes take their prey and young up into trees to keep them safe from other predators. They can run at speeds of up to 58 km per hour! 

Tigers are the largest big cat and can kill prey up to twice their size. They are carnivores and sometimes eat snakes! They live to 10-15 years of age and are endangered and several species are now extinct.

The blob fish is a deep sea fish that lives 2,000-3,900 feet deep in the ocean around Australia and New Zealand. It is gelatinous - 90% water - and shrivels up when exposed to the air. It was voted the ugliest animal in the world! It is nearly extinct and The Blues Brothers thought it came from outer space!

Guinea pigs come from South America and will eat any plants and vegetables they can find. They only sleep for around 4 hours a day and their eyes stay open when they do so they can watch out for danger. We learnt about how guinea pigs do pop-corning too!

Capybaras are the largest rodent species in the world. They can make lots of different noises and are quite big - the size of a big dog. They eat mainly grass and plants.

We were really impressed by the quality of the presentations and the range of animals that were chosen, well done.
