A series of quatrains highlights the individual characteristics of creatures!

Random Creatures

Mister Emperor Penguin, that's my man!
He'd win my heart, if anybody can.
Caring for that egg, oh, what a hero,
Protecting it in temperatures sub zero.

The Zebra is a chap who likes to hide,
On the Savannah grassy, flat and wide,
From prowling lions hungry, fierce and proud,
By standing still, and merging with the crowd.

Komodo Dragons are a funny lot,
They bite their prey, and watch them slowly rot.
Putrid flesh may well suit their dentition,
But it's not my idea of good nutrition.
