OH MY GOD! I found this
yesterday! It was an essay I did in grade 6! It was my 3rd essay, I
believe. Anyways, read it and tell me how okay it
pestilent, mysterious creature trudges along the coast of Komodo
Island, Indonesia. With his dark green, slick scales, he glimpses
from side to side, sinking into the loneliness around him.
Forever black, mesmerizing eyes glow in the sunlight. Such a
domestic creation, soon to be ripped apart from our grasp. If
only we could help.
"There are so many other
endangered animals. Why the Komodo Dragon?"
-(JJ, Zoo keeper of his room)
Sure there are many other
endangered animals disappearing about. Bengal Tigers with their
flashy, yet camouflaging stripes. Peregrine Falcons soaring at
175 miles per hour. On the other hand, Komodo Dragons, I
find most exquisite! Not only do they maintain food balance, but
they also clean the environment, and they are a great start for
saving more to-be-extinct animals.
carnivores, the Komodo Dragon eats small animals like
invertebrates, birds, and even baby Komodos! As they maintain the
food balance, our meat eaters are rapidly getting extinct or
endangered. For example, the Snow Leopard is slowly disappearing.
If we let all of our balancers die, then what will happen to the
chain? The world will be left crowded with bunnies and other
small animals. What will be do with them? Do you know? I
don't. Well I guess it's too bad. But whatever, you know.
Since you don't want to help!
As well, the Komdo dragon eats alot more than other animals. A
Polar Bear eats 2 kg of food a day, whereas Komdos eat 8 pounds
per day. They eat alot more! On the one hand, Komdos can eat as
little as 12 meals per year, leaving the other carnivores some
more food to eat. What a humble guy!!!!
Equally important, the dragon also cleans the environment. This
150 kg lizard eats most of the waste you can find washed up to
the beach. They're like nature's janitors! Secondly, the
komdo dragon can detect a dead animal from up to 5 miles away.
Thanks to them, the rotting, left-overs that nobody wanted are
finally cleaned up and devoured. Finally! Someone did something
about it! Furthermore, the Varanus Komdoesis protects the land he
is living in with other animals. Since Komdos are such enormous,
deadly, jaw ripping animals, people will most likely stay
away from their habitats, leaving a peacefully, non urbanised,
factory free region. The lizard practically just saved every
animal and the environment of his home.
Last but not least, if we start to help this reptile, then it
will be easier to help other animals. Think about it. The Komdo
dragon will be a great practise. We'll be raising
fund-raisers, and everything. Now we'll know great ways to
advertise now that we know what works. Beautiful! Now we have the
money to save them. Since we're helping them and preventing
that cause, we now know how to handle those causes. Other animals
might be endangered because of the same reason. In this case, we
can save those other animals. Considering, when we have saved the
Komodos, we could have also saved the animals around it. For
instance, what if the Komodo dragon from a certain area was dying
because of polluted land? Yay! The land is cleaned. Not only did
we save the Komodo dragon from that land, but also saved the
other creatures that lived on it. It's a win-win!
reasons, our only Varanous Komodoesis's population has turned
for the worse; edangered. Millions of years, Komdo dragons have
lived on this land we claim ours, even though they were here
first. Pumbled, cut down, and polluted for urbaisation, the
feirce monitor lizard stood on its dying home. He stayed strong.
Strong enough to help us. Help us by maintaining the food
balance, cleaning the environment, and being a great animal to
help us get started on saving other endangered animals. Here you
have it. The most generous, selfless creature on Earth
disappearing. Don't you think it's our turn, our turn to
