      My favourite animal is the pangolin, they are mammals like humans are, but they have scales, they also have really long tails and they climb in trees. For a long time people thought they were some sort of monkey, or something like an armadillo, but from looking at the DNA we have found out that their closest relatives in evolutionary terms are carnivorans. These are animals such as dogs, cats, hyaenas, bears and seals. Weird!!

      Well, I like sloths quite a lot – they are sleepy and slow, which is sometimes how I feel!

      I also love pigs, goats and dogs though – ideally I’d have a house with a garden big enough to keep a couple of pigs and goats and then I’d also have a big hairy dog like an Irish Wolfhound!
