An animal that seems to have long arms instead of front legs. A funny animal that makes us laugh.

A small animal that many people have as a pet. Comes in many colors. Says, "Meow."
This animal is called the "king of the beasts." It is strong and fierce. It is a light brown color.
This animal is a well-liked pet. It has been called "man's best friend." It comes in many colors, and it barks.
