Whales are the largest animals on the earth. Bigger than elephants, they may grow 95 feet long, and weigh 150 tons. A baby blue whale, just born, can be 23 feet long and weigh 3 tons.
Although whales live in the oceans and swim like fish, they are not fish. They are mammals, like cows and elephants. Unlike fish they bear young alive, not as eggs. Their babies live on their mother’s milk. They breathe through their lungs and hold their breath when they go under water. If they cannot come to the surface to breathe fresh air, they will drown. They are warm blooded. Fish, however, lay eggs, breathe oxygen in the water, and are cold-blooded.
Whales life in all-the ocean, in the winter some of them go to warm waters to breed and in the summer most of them go to cold waters to feed. There are to kinds of whales, whales with teeth (tooted whales) and whales without teeth (baleen whales). The toothed whales eat fish and squid, which they can catch with their teeth, although they swallow their food without chewing it. The baleen whales eat plankton (small sea animals and plants). When they find plankton, they open their mouth and swallow the plankton.
Whales have few enemies. Only human and killer whale attack whales. And whales do not seem to fight among themselves. They usually live from 20 to 30 years.

The Brainy Body
Your brain is as big as your two fists side by side. It's the place where you think, learn, work out problems, remember, feel happy and sad, wonder, worry, have ideas, sleep and dream.
Yet the brain looks like a wrinkly lump of grey-pink jelly! On average, it weighs about 1.4 kilograms. It doesn't move, but its amazing nerve activity uses up one-fifth of all the energy needed by the body.
The main part of the brain is its bulging, wrinkled upper part, the cerebrum. Different areas of its surface (cerebral cortex) deal with nerve signals to and from different parts of the body. For example, messages from the eyes pass to the lower rear part of the cerebrum, called the visual center. They are sorted here as the brain cells work out what the eyes are seeing.
There are also areas for touch, hearing, taste and other body processes. ,
The cerebellum is the rounded, wrinkled part at the back of the brain. It processes messages from the motor center, sorting and coordinating them in great detail, to send to the body's hundreds of muscles. This is how we learn skilled, precise movements such as writing, cycling or playing music (or all three), almost without thinking.
The brain stem is the lower part of the brain, where it joins the body's main nerve, the spinal cord. The brain stem controls basic processes vital for life, like breathing, heartbeat, digesting food and removing wastes.
The brain really does have 'brain waves'. Every second it receives sorts and sends millions of nerve signals. Special pads attached to the head can detect these tiny electrical pulses. They are shown on a screen or paper strip as wavy lines called an EEG, electro-encephalogram.

            A Kangaroo is a marsupial from the family Marcopodidae (marcopods, meaning ‘large foot’). In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, the Red Kangaroo, the Antilopine Kangaroo, and the eastern and Western Grey Kangaroo of the Macropus genus.
            The Kangaroo is an Australia icon: it is featured on the Australian coat of arms, on some of its currency, and is used by many Australian organizations, including Qantas.
            Kangaroo soon became adopted into Standard English where it has come to mean any member of the family of kangaroos and wallabies. Male kangaroos are called bucks, boomers, jacks, or old men; famales are does, flyers, or jills, and the young ones are joeys. The collective noun for kangaroos is a mob, troop, or court. Kangaroos are sometimes colloquially referred to as roos.
            Kangaroos have large, powerful hind legs, large feet adapted for leaping, along muscular tail for balance, and a small head. Like all marsupials, female kangaroos have a pouch called a marcupium in which joeys complete postnatal development.
            Because of its long feet, it cannot walk correctly. To move at slow speeds, it used its tail to form a tripod with its two forelimbs. It then raises its hind feet forward, in a form of locomotion called “crawl-walking.”

Mangrove Trees
            A mangrove is a tropical maritime tree or shrub of the genus Rhizophora. Mangroves have special aerial roots and salt-filtering tap roots that enable them to thrive in brackish water (brackish water is salty, but not as salty as sea water).
            There are several species of mangrove tress found all over the world. Some prefer more salinity, while others like to be very close to a large fresh water source (such as a river). Some prefer areas that are sheltered from waves. Some species have their roots covered with sea water every day during high tide. Others are more sensitive to salinity, and grow closer to the shore. Other species grow on dry land, but are still part of the ecosystem.
            Mangrove need to keep their trunk and leaves above the water line. Yet they also need to be firmly attached to the ground so they are not moved by waves. There are three types of mangrove roots that help in this process :
1.     Support roots which directly pierce the soil.
2.      Level-growing roots which twist upward and downwards, with the upward twists emerging on the water surface.
3.     Level-growing roots whose downward twists (sub-roots) appear on the water surface.
Any part of a root that appears above the water line channels oxygen to the plant below the water line. Over time as soil begins to build up, these roots produce additional roots that become embedded in the soil.

4.     What is a mangrove tree ?
a.     It is dessert tree or vegetation of the genus Zoroaster
b.    It is a mountain tree or plant of the genus polychaeta
c.     It is a jungle tree or vegetation of the genus ancylostoma

b.    They do need oxygen to live
c.     They do not need water to live
d.    They have special aerial roots and salt-filtering tap roots
e.     They produces the salt for human.
6.     What can you say about brackish water?
a.     Brackish water is sweet but not as sweet as sugar
b.    Brackish water is sour but not as sour as acid
c.     Brackish water is hot but not as hot as red pepper
d.    Brackish water is salty but not as salty as sea water
e.     Brackish water is bitter but not as bitter as herbs.

The Sumatran elephant’s habitat is in Sumatra, Indonesia. The average male elephant reaches eight feet high and weighs up to six tons. A baby elephant can weigh up to one ton. The males are always larger than the females. They are massive creatures.

Elephants have a trunk, two tusks, two eyes, two ears and two lumps on their head. They are known to be clever animals.

Elephants hear some noises that can not be heard by a human ear.

Ants are small insect. The body of an ant is clearly divided into three sections; the head, the thorax, and the gaster.

Birds belong to a class of warm blooded vertebrate animals with feather covered bodies. Next to mammals, birds are the most important group of land-living vertebrates.
All birds have feathers, although in some types, particularly those that can not fly, the normal structure of the feathers of the feathers may be much modified and be downy, woolly, or straw like. The forelimbs of birds are modified into wings. The bony part of the tall, except in the very earliest fossil birds, is very short, and the visible tall is composed of the feathers only. The teeth are absent except in some fossil forms. As in mammals the only other group of warm-blooded animal-the circulation is highly perfected so that there is no mixing of arterial and venous blood, but the arrangement of veins and arteries by which this is accomplished, is different in the two groups.
