Hello my name is Daniel and I am writing about the animals of Africa. One of the animals is a lion. A group of lions is called a pride. Males have a mane, and females do not. Another animal is a hippo. Hippopotamus means river horse. Adult males weigh 3,300 pounds. Another one is the cheetah. Cheetahs are the fastest land animals, they can run up to 40 MPH. Another animal is the elephant. Elephants like to swim and they like to stick their trunks out of the water like a snorkel. Another is the black rhino and they have two horns. Black rhinos don’t eat meat, black rhinos eat grass. My favorite animals are animals of Africa.
