The Pangolin (fascinating animal) by Chris M.

This adorably unusual little critter with padding all over is the Pangolin. Much like the armadillo, the Pangolin is covered in body armor and can dig with its claws. It can’t walk on all fours because of its big claws, making it not very fast. However, the claws are useful for digging into ant holes and termite mounds. Another feature the Pangolin has is its long sticky tongue, useful for pulling the ants and termites out of their mounds for the Pangolin’s food.

Unlike the Pokemon Sandslash, which can fight other Pokemon in battle, the Pangolin does not fight predators with its sharp claws, although it can use its body armor for defense if it is threatened by predators, except the armor cannot defend the Pangolin from humans wanting it as both food and Chinese medicine.

 

But there is still hope for the Pangolin. Scientists around the world are working together in African and Asian countries to make sure the Pangolin species survives and thrives through animal conservation and research.

Will you join in to support the Pangolin’s survival? You can donate money to animal conservation groups, such as World Wildlife Fund, to save Pangolins in Africa and Asia.

Detective Pikachu(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the Nintendo 3DS game Detective Pikachu.

In this game, you play as both a highly intelligent Pikachu who is not only skilled in detective work but also capable of human speech as well as Tim Goodman (Pikachu’s new human friend).

In this game, Detective Pikachu and Tim Goodman work to solve the disappearance of Tim Goodman’s Father as well as the various mysteries surrounding Ryme City.

The cast of support characters are Emilia Christie (a GNN news reporter), Meiko Okamoto (Emilia’s camera woman), Roger Clifford (GNN Producer), Ethan Graham (GNN president), Mimikyu (GNN News Network’s mascot), Brad McMaster (Ryme City’s police lieutenant)(partner Pokemon: Manectric), Mike Baker (Head of the Baker Detective Agency/former associate of Tim Goodman’s father)(partner Pokemon: Accelgor), Frank Holiday (Ryme City’s police Inspector), Amanda Blackstone (Assistant at the Baker Detective Agency)(partner Pokemon: Fletchling) and Pablo Millan (owner of the Hi-Hat Cafe)(partner Pokemon: Ludicolo).

In conclusion, I believe this Pokemon game will showcase Pikachu in a highly intelligent Sherlock Holmes fashion comprised of both looks and behavior. (“Elementary-my dear trainer-Elementary.”)

Animals of Africa

People on the autism spectrum often exhibit an intense focus on a particular area of interest. These affections may change over time, yet the level of enthusiasm remains the same. At SEEDs for Autism, we recognize that these passionate hobbies offer a level of comfort and stability to these unique individuals. From there, we can introduce new ideas and challenges to help our participants GROW. Daniel loves the animals of Africa, and during the creation of this blog post, he confidently stepped outside of his comfort zone. Apart from performing the technical skills of online research, typing, uploading images, adding categories and finding appropriate tags, Daniel opened his mind and created poems about his favorite animals.

Alien Woodlands

    

  On a world far from earth in a forest with trees taller than the mountains, rests a village of humans brought by a race of beings long ago. The people here have evolved to have much longer lifespans and have what some would call powers. Among them is boy about 14 or 15 years old loved by the village and all the living creatures that live on the world. This boy is me and this world is my home. The trees hold houses built into the trunks of the tallest trees. The sound of our music can be heard from miles away.  I don’t age and I have a lot of friends. Life is peaceful and we get wild storms, though the trees protect us from the strong winds and lightning. Tonight is a rite of passage for me. It is how I get my name.

Sonic the Hedgehog(2006)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Sonic the Hedgehog for the PlayStation 3. In this game you play not only as Sonic The Hedgehog, but also as Shadow the Hedgehog as well as a new character called Silver the Hedgehog. This game’s storyline takes place throughout the Kingdom of Soleanna (the City of Water).

 

The protagonists in this game consist of Sonic the Hedgehog (the Blue Blur)(Main Hero), Shadow the Hedgehog (the Ultimate Lifeform)(Sonic’s Rival), Silver the Hedgehog (a PsychoKinetic)(Time-Traveling rebel), Miles “Tails” Prower (a Two-Tailed Fox)(Sonic’s best friend), Knuckles the Echidna (the Last of his Kind)(the Master Emerald’s lone Guardian), Rouge the Bat (a Jewel Thief/Secret Agent)(Shadow’s accomplice), E-123 Omega(a Robotic Soldier)(Shadow’s ally), Blaze the Cat (a PyroKinetic)(Silver’s best friend/partner) and Amy Rose (a PikoPiko Hammer wielding Battle-Maiden)(Sonic’s self-proclaimed Girlfriend). The antagonists in this game consist of Dr. EggMan (the Main Villain)(an Evil super-genius/Sonic’s arch-enemy), Mephiles the Dark (the Embodiment of Darkness), Iblis(the Flames of Disaster) and Solaris (the Sun God of Soleanna)(the Flame of Hope/Disaster).

 

In conclusion, I found this game to be extremely tense yet highly emotional. For instance, there was both intense sadness and incredible happiness when Sonic the Hedgehog was killed by Mephiles the Dark then Resurrected through the power of all seven Chaos Emeralds. In short, this game is without a doubt worthy of being the Sonic the Hedgehog franchises 15th anniversary.
