Bài mẫu (Sample Answer)

“Today I’m going to tell you about my favourite wild animal. I’m a bit of a nature geek, so naturally, I am quite fascinated with animals. One of my favourites is the lion.

It’s a mammal, which means the females give birth to cubs, rather than laying eggs. It’s known for being a ferocious predator. It hunts on smaller animals like deer or antelopes. Lion is generally yellow or orange in colour. Its distinguishing feature is the mane, the thick fur around the neck of male lions. This trait is virtually absent in female ones.

You can be expected to find lions at a number of places. For example, in the wild, like the savanna in Africa. They can also be found in zoos, but those are the tamed kinds. Lions are carnivores, so they feed primarily on meat. I would imagine they are not a fan of greens. They are predators, so I suppose the bulk of their daily activities is hunting. I don’t know much else apart from these things.

My love for the lion was fostered when I watched the Lion King as a child. It was a critically acclaimed animated movie by Disney, and definitely one of my perennial favourites.”
