2. Lion Hi, Sir. I am Jerlo. I am twenty seven years old. I will tell my story. I was born in June, 28 in Africa. I passed ten years living with my mum and dad till they died fourteen years ago. At sixteen I started a new life. I obtained a job as a flight attendant, so I traveled all around the world. It was a beautiful job with a generous salary, but with nerve racking situations. At twenty I started up my own business, a circus. I used to catch some animals for hard work. I made great money. Finally, new owners have taken over the business. Wild lions currently exist in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia with a critically endangered The lion is the tallest of the felines, and also is the second-heaviest feline after the tiger. With powerful legs, a strong jaw, and 8 cm long canine teeth, the lion can bring down and kill large prey. Lions are predatory carnivores.

In the next few lines I will talk about my family. </li></ul><ul><li>My biological family had dead and too many of my cousins had escaped to America. I used to live in Europe but there were a lot of people that wanted monkey´s skins. I was in real danger. Thanks to God I moved to Africa where I found an elephant who adopted me, Susie. She has adopted me, she looks after me. I feel really well. Africa´s bad part was that I had been forced to work in a circus. They exploited me, I had to work eighteen hours per day. I was in the field where I had to walk on a rope. It was really dangerous. I broke my arm and fortunately, the bosses fired me and my mum Susie too. </li></ul><ul><li>Four years later my mum married Richard, my stepfather.

6. Elephant: Susie Hello guys! I am Susie. I am sixty years old. In the next few lines I will tell my gloomy story. When I was forty, I used to play with Tom, my godchild. His father escaped when Tom was born. I founded him in Africa and helped him, so we are like a family. But something wrong happened. I was playing with Tom in Africa's deserts when suddenly, two predators, a lion and a jaguar, appeared and started to threaten and hit us. I tried to resist, but the lion was so strong that I couldn't do anything. Anyway, if I was killed, I suppose the lad was going to die too. I was under pressure so I explained I will do whatever they want. They forced me to work hardly in a circus for a long time. I didn't have another choice so I accepted. Both compelled Tom as well. We had to work twelve hours per day. I was bullied and humiliated in front of another animals. The lion was rude, insensitive and moody. The jaguar was the arrogance king. But not all was so bad, I made up with some other animals, like an hippopotamus and a giraffe. After two months I fell out with the hippo but soon we made up. Finally, I got in love with Richard, the giraffe. During the period of work, I learned practical skills and worked in a team. I was an specialist at the field of entertaining the audience. Behind the scenes, I could rest for a few minutes and then come back to the stage. I worked there for twenty years, when finally I was fired because of my age. I was replaced with another young animals. Three years later, I got married with Richard. Tom is pleased of having a step-father. Richard is like a guardian too, just because he cares of Tom when I am looking for food here, in Africa!

8. Giraffe: Richard Hello kids! I am Richard. I am 35 years old. I will tell my story. I used to live in Africa with my mum and dad when I was twelve. I had a brother, James, who left us when I was six. I was so sad and my parents too. By the time I was with James, I learned to respect others and with it, I made new friends. I was fifteen when a jaguar appeared and caught me. He took me to de circus where I worked for ten years. All was horrifying for a while, but when I met Susie, the elephant, all my life changed. Together, we resisted the pressure influenced by the lion. We married three years later. The giraffe is an African ungulate mammal, the tallest of all land-living animal species. They have long necks which they use to browse tree leaves. They don´t have upper teeth. They can see very well.
