Today for Fun Friday I'm going to tell you about the emperor scorpion.The emperor scorpion is a big scorpion found in the African region.The emperor scorpion is one of the biggest scorpions in the world growing to about 8 inches but the biggest one ever recorded was a forest scorpion at a length of 9 inches long.Although it may be big it's venom is not very toxic only being to kill probably 1 person with a single sting but other scorpions like the Arizona,the most venomous scorpion in North America,can kill up to 4 people with one sting!The emperor scorpion has a huge appetite eating lizards,birds,and small rodents to small thing's like termites and worms.It also has a variety of predators like other scorpions,spiders,wasps,and flies.That's my report on the emperor scorpion.The End.

Fishy Monday: The Cardinalfish

Today I'm starting something that I call Fishy Monday,kind of like Fun Friday but all about fish.Today I'm going to tell you about the cardinal fish and just so you know the fish will not be in alphabetical order.There are many species of cardinal fish from the ordinary black and white cardinal fish to the spotted and pajama cardinal fish.Since people get confused between cardinal bird and cardinal fish especially kids they are also known as a longer but more easy to remember name which is small fish with big eyes.They are very small fish with most species growing to only 2 inches and can be very beautiful with stripes and spots all over there body.They are nocturnal fish meaning that they sleep in the day and hunt at night.That's when there eyes come in.They use there eyes to see small crustaceans and fish in the pitch black of night.If you go out in the coral reefs of the world you will probably not see these fish because like I said they are nocturnal but If you do see a cardinal fish you will normally find them in pairs.That's it for today's fishy adventures.See you next Monday for another fishy adventure.The End.

How To Care For My Pets While I Am On Vacation

DJ's writing assignment for today is to write directions for someone who will be caring for his pets, while he is away for the weekend, on a short vacation.

Okay Aunt Norma here's a list on how to take care of our pets why were gone.
1.The dogs need to be fed every morning and every evening in between 5 and 4 am and 5 and 4 pm.The dog food is located in the cabinet underneath the moms medicine cabinet and you'll see a white bucket with there dog food in it.Two cups would be fine.Don't forget to feed the cat.If you can't find the cat food ,because sometimes it gets left in places it is not suppose to be,just give the cat dog food he doesn't care.The cat has to be fed at about the time of 8 am and 8 pm.They also get a full bowl of water once a day that means the cat too.
2.Make sure if it rains when were gone not to let the puppy out.Krypto can go out side after it rains by himself but biscuit has to go on leash because she gets filthy.
3.The dogs get plenty of attention a day so when your not busy with them take the time to spend time with the cat because they both need the name amount of attention.That's how you take care of the animals why were on vacation.The End.

Lost In The Plains A Cheetah Story

The following story is partially true about a little cheetah named Toto and a Mommy cheetah named Honey that lived in Africa.

Once upon a time in the plains of Africa there was a baby cheetah named Toto and his mom Clio.Toto was a happy baby cheetah with his mom teaching him how to hunt,playing with other baby cheetahs,and just being happy to be a cheetah but one day while Clio was out hunting Toto was at the den waiting for mom to get back with lunch but Clio is miles away and Toto can not wait anymore.He heads out to find Clio but once Clio gets back she finds out Toto is not there.Little does she know that Toto set out to look for her.While Clio is wondering where in the world Toto has gone Toto has got himself in a heap of trouble by bothering a bull elephant while he was sleeping.Luckily by using his brain Toto knows enough to get himself out of there as soon as possible and that's why when the elephant was getting up Toto got a head start and ran for the hills or bushes in this occasion.Meanwhile at the den Clio is just heading out to find Toto when she remembers that she forgot to bring the food to the den.Luckily no hyenas got it.Then Clio heads out to get Toto by using a special cheetah call like little chirp.While Clio sets out to find Toto Toto is having a ball by chasing prairie dogs at every turn.He manages to catch one and drags it into the shade and has a snack while he rests.While hes eating he hears his mom calling and he stops eating and heads right for his mom but when he gets to his mom he sees Clio snuggling with another cheetah.Although Toto's not going down without a fight.He gives a low growl as if to say "That's my Mommy,"and starts fighting.The stranger cheetah is stronger than Toto and throws him down on his back and there Toto lies in amazement but while Toto lies on his back Clio recognizes Toto ,because the real Toto has an all white tummy,and pulls him out of the fight.Once Toto and Clio are back together the stranger cheetah heads off but before he got to far both Toto and Clio made a very squeaky chirp as if to say "You can live with us."Now Toto,Clio,and Toto's new brother Taj are one big happy family and they lived happily ever after.The End.
