Animal Adventure Comment of the Week
Deja Vow - Age 17 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)
I think the best action is to have humans remove the invasive species.
If we use poisons, they may kill more than just the invasive species. Introducing a natural enemy of the invasive species may just create a further problem...like adding a new potential invasive species.

The story continues from this beginning:
Skeeter decides to play a trick on Riley and dress up as him for Halloween! Skeeter puts together a dog costume and walks around telling bad jokes. But when Riley sees it, he gets embarrassed and thinks Skeeter is making fun of him! Now he's yelling at Skeeter and crying! Skeeter didn't mean any harm, but Angry Cloud has made Riley overreact! Can Skeeter use a Humor Plant Baby to help Riley take it in good fun? Write the rest of the story.
Skeeter ran to the Plant Baby Shop and picks out the Humor Plant Baby out of the rest with his orange skin and one blue eye. He said, "Humor Plant Baby, I've made a mistake and hurt Riley's feelings! Can you help me fix this?" The Plant Baby nods and smiles then laughing and Skeeter knew his problem was fixed already!
The next day, Humor Plant Baby met Riley at the same store where Riley had confronted him last night. The Plant Baby has made up a whole bunch of jokes for Skeeter to say to Riley. Skeeter had already called an angry Riley and asked him to meet him there. Riley had humphed and said, "Alright, fine, but if you embaress me in front of my friends again, I ain't coming to your side again!" Skeeter really really hoped these jokes would work because Riley was his best friend and he didn't want Riley to hurt because of his silly mistake. When Riley came strolling down the block, Skeeter sprinted up to him and automatically burst out with a joke that Humor Plant Baby had shown him. "Hey Riley! What do you call a cow with a twitch??" When Riley didn't answer Skeeter did for him, "Beef Jerky!! Get it?" A tiny hint of a smile started at Riley's lips but then disappeared as soon as it came. Riley said, "That's all you got?" Skeeter shook his head and smiled, "Why did the cookie go to the doctor?" This time Riley said, "Um, he was sick?"
"No silly, he was feeling kinda crumby!" Skeeter playfully punched his best friend's arm. Riley giggled. "Tell another Skeeter!" AFter that the two friends went to sit at the table at the restraunt across the street and Skeeter told Riley several more jokes with Humor Plant Baby watching carefully agross the street smiling. After the sun had set, Riley sighed and said, "Well Skeeter, you sure proved me wrong, I guess you were just trying to be punny or funny, whatever you call it!" He gave his best friend a hug and continued, "I forgive you Skeeter!" Skeeter smiled hugging his friend back and sent a little thank you in his mind to Humor Plant Baby who had helped him out!

Rebekah - 12 - United Kingdom
It started on Halloween. There is this graveyard in the center of town and I just so happened to be there when a black cat appeared. He had something on his back. It was a screaming skull. I was so terrified, I screamed and no one came to the rescue. I was stood gob smacked, when suddenly the cat winked at me. I ran for it, dropping all my sweets on the way. I don't know if it was just some one playing a trick on me or it was real, but I'm not going to the graveyard again.
