Homework:

What is your favorite animal? Is is a domestic animal or a wild animal?
Would it make a good pet, why or why not? What is the animal’s natural habitat?




Example: I would love to have a miniature horse. These small horses are usually found in zoos, but some are being trained to help blind people. I think that it would be a good pet, but you would have to have a large yard to keep the horse at night, and for its exercise.
