Animal Adventure Comment of the Week

I think we should develop zoning laws so we can let the animals keep their homes.They were here first. It's there home. They will die without its protection. We decide if they live in peace, or die in our selfishness and greed.

Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have become flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid, and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their life on land and half in the oceans.

One day, we were on our way to Florida for a vacation. I brought my favorite book, "Harry Potter". About half way, we stopped to get a drink. So I went in to buy a couple bottles of water. When I came back I found that nobody was in the car and my book was wide open on the front seat. I ran back inside the store to find myself face to face with Harry Potter!
He said, "Are you the one that lost your parents?"
I said, "Yes."
Then with a snap of his hand I was in Wizard World standing by my family. We all had wands in our hands, plus we had robes on and we were in the middle of a Quidditch match!
After the match, Harry Potter came over to us and said, "I brought you guys here because I heard you're awesome Quidditch players. I need you to help me in the next Quidditch match."
I caught the snitch almost right away, so of course we won the game. After that, Harry Potter sent us back to our car. What a way to start a family vacation!
