Part 1 Wild Animals
What wild animals do you like the most?
It’s gotta be the snow leopard. I have always been fascinated by this animal. These large cats live in the high mountains in Tibet and Xinjiang, some of the harshest environments on earth that are called the Third Pole, and that’s exactly what makes them so unique, so mysterious. They are just so rare and so beautiful.
Have you ever seen any wild animals before?
Yes I have. I have seen baboons, rhinos, bears and a lot of other wild animals in the zoo, and I have also seen marine animals like jellyfish, sea turtles, dolphins, sharks, orcas in the aquarium. Once on a hike that I took in the mountains in Tibet, I was lucky to spot some blue sheep and wild yaks, it was thrilling for a city dweller like me.
Do you like to go to the zoo?
I enjoy going to the zoo. Animals are beautiful and there’s so much to learn about them, and you also get to interact with some of the animals, feed them, and maybe touch them if it is allowed, you really have a sense of getting close to nature, but I also feel bad for these animals because I feel like wild animals should run free in the wild. I’m not sure whether these animals are happy being locked up in cages.
Have you ever kept pets?
No, I have not. To be honest, I’m just not a pet person, I mean, cats and dogs, they are adorable, they are good company. But to keep them, that’s a lot of work and responsibility, I mean, vacuuming pet hair and picking up their poop, not a fan. Plus, I feel like I’m always tied up with work, I just don’t have the time to take care of a pet.
