The goblin shark is a slow-swimming shark that lives in very deep water. It is not often seen by humans. It has got a very creepy appearance, with a long flat nose that it uses like a metal detector to sense other fish. When it finds food, its jaw comes out quickly, catches its prey and slides back in making it look like a strange machine. It is a pinkish colour and grows up to 4 metres long.

Do you think animals have the power to change people and a person’s behavior?

Animals have a powerful force that influences people’s behaviour. They positively affect people’s lives in a way they can not understand.
Have you ever imagined what life would be like without pets? These little friends can transform a bad day into a better one. One smile or a hug from them act joyfully. In other words, animals have an impact on others and influence emotions. That is why pets help us to be happier and reduce anxiety, because of their fluffy fair.
Animals also help people in being more responsible. For instance, a dog needs food at a particular time and the person learns how to care and nurture it. This means that human brains start thinking unconsciously. Indeed there is another life which must be cared for except for himself.
In conclusion, animals give us the gratification of their company. Peoples life and character can be changed by the animal’s power. After all this do you still not want an amiable pet in your life?

Are we for or against zoos?

In our days, most countries have big zoos with animals from all over the world. They have small animals like monkeys or parrots but have bigger animals like elephants and lions. But are zoos good for animals or not? In my opinion, they are not.

To start with, animals have to be in their natural environment because it is their home. The animals there can grow, they can hunt their food and to not be captured in a zoo as if they were in prison. In the wild, they will have a healthier life and they will be happier.

Furthermore, zoos are very dangerous for everyone, because it has a big number of wild animals which can hurt us. For example, if a group of people come closer to this animal, it may be scared because it has a lot of people and to attack you. This is the animal’s reaction when they feel that they are in danger.

On the other hand, zoos have some important advantages for animals and their countries. Firstly, zoos raise the tourists of this country because everyone loves animals and wants to see them.
Secondly, animals, which are in danger to extinct, some people take them from the jungles and bring them to the zoos which they are safer.

To conclude, zoos are helpful to raise the tourism of the country, but they are like a prison for the animals.

My favourite animal

My favourite animal is a lion. The lion is the king of the jungle. I like lions because baby lions are the cutest animals in the world. The lion is a mammal because feeds its babies with its own milk. The first time I saw lions in the Athens zoo but they were asleep. Lions are 200 kilos. I enjoy watching documentaries about lions. I like going to the zoo and looking at animals so close. In the kedu blog, I have photos of lions because lions are my favourite animals.

Can Animals Change a Human’s Ways and Traits? an essay by P.E. Eleftheriou

They say a dog is a man’s best friend. Animals have been man’s companions since the early ages. In certain cases, they even helped to change people’s behaviour and way of thinking. Is that even possible? Believe it or not, it is!
Firstly, animals, like dogs, give unconditional love to someone, no matter their origin; race etc., but they also know whether somebody is unfriendly or dangerous. In that case, if an animal shows affection to a person not liked by lots of people or isolated from society, they might start to believe they deserve the rest of the world’s respect and acceptance. In that way, that feeling encourages them to try and become better human beings.
In addition, by loving an animal and caring about it, a person learns to feel the same about other people; close to them or not.
Secondly, experiences also change somebody’s character. Likewise, a special bond between a human and their pet can have the same effects. For instance, somebody may not have anybody to support them in their life, but their little four-legged friend is still there for them. Furthermore, petting a cute or adoring animal can chase all of somebody’s anxiety and stress away and the rest seems insignificant.
However, some may think that all the views I pointed out only apply to animal-lovers. This might seem accurate, still, it is not. In other words, it is on the cards that non-animal lovers can have a change of heart just by spending time with them.
Animals are the only innocent beings on earth, so maybe we should start taking some of their traits as examples. Lots of people use the expression “behave like an animal”, yet I believe we should start questioning ourselves: “Are humans behaving like animals or are animals behaving like humans?”.
