- When did you see it?
- Where did you see it?
- Explain why it is interesting?
Aquatic animals dwell in water bodies and are mainly found only in water. Some of the most common aquatic animals are fishes, octopuses, turtles, and so forth. Some aquatic animals are found in freshwater, while others are found in marine water, depending upon their anatomical and morphological features to adapt to particular environments.
I saw a fish the first time my family took me to a nearby pond at my native place when I was around five years old. I remember how fascinated and enthralled I was to have had a look at those beautiful creatures swimming with their exquisite fins, which looked so pleasing to the eyes. I even wanted to have a fin like them back then, to which we still reminisce and laugh about.
Apart from the fishes, I have seen lots of other aquatic animals as well. For instance, a crocodile, which can survive on land as well, spends most of its life in water. Crocodiles are fascinating creatures, right from the way they hunt to the way they look. I saw a crocodile in a zoo for the first time and I used to get a lot of perplexity in deciphering the difference between a crocodile and an alligator.
I, personally, love water and being an ardent water-lover, I find these animals very intriguing. It’s about the way they are so different from the terrestrial creatures. Their gills or other respiratory organs are a matter of interest for me and each time I look at them, I thank nature for its diversity and variegated beauty.

1. Why do people like to keep pets?
There are umpteen reasons to have a pet, including companionship, love for animals, medical conditions, etc. Pets are proven to be one of the most effective ways to relieve a patient from a lot of mental disorders. For instance, dogs are considered to have a significant therapeutic effect on people in acute depression or are agonised for some reason. Moreover, they are great companions.

3 Do you support doing experiments on animals?
I believe experimenting on animals is, in a way, necessary to mankind as we tend to get a lot of facts and discoveries upon such experiments. For instance, we would have never got to know the molecular basis of inheritance had Griffith not used the rats to carry out his transformation experiment. However, we should also be vigilant in carrying out such experiments, especially on species that might be endangered.

Some people might not want to eat animals owing to their love for them and might find it as an ethical corruption to feed on them, while some might not have them owing to their digestive problems and on medical grounds.
5 What would happen when some species disappear on earth?
If some species disappear from the face of Earth, a lot of turbulence and disarrangement shall take place. Nature has always carried it forth by maintaining balance and sync among various organisms. Therefore, it would be a huge loss to our ecosystem and make our planet naturally impecunious.
