Tanzania’s Animals I am writing about the animals of Tanzania. Get this if you were walking through the hot Tanzania desert you might run into a black rhino. A black rhino has two horns and a dark skin color so you will notice it quickly. Anywhere you go in Tanzania you will most likely find an animal. For example is you go to Pemba Island you will see a flying fox it might come near you because it is very social. Another example of another animal in Tanzania is if you were climbing up Mt. Kilimanjaro you could find a wild dog which is not to friendly so I wouldn't go near it. Lets just say that we in America have a lot of different animals but a lot of the same.

<ul><li>In Africa water is very scarce. Can you believe before wells were built in Africa women spent six hours a day boiling water and bringing it back to their homes. Women now have to walk up to ten miles to reach a well and get a day supply of water for their families. In Africa there are only 90 wells provided for the source of water. Believe it or not some children carry water to their families before they go to school. In America we take clean water for granted. </li></ul>Water in tanzania
