No one ever would have imagined that a killer whale would want love and companionship from humans, because of the huge differences in both. This story opened my eyes and point of view on how all animals no matter big or small experience feelings and emotions like people. There have been several studies in history that demonstrated and show the evidence that animals go thru a lot of feelings we the people tent to go thru. According to a studied and report by Jonathan Balcombe “following the death of an infant, baboon mothers show physiological and behavioral responses that mirror those of bereft women. Glucocorticoid hormones — associated with grief in humans — rise and take a month to subside again, and the bereaved mother monkey seeks therapy by expanding her social network through increased grooming interactions with other baboons.(J.Balcombe
Many different cultures have myths and stories about how they think the world was created. These myths commonly reflect different values that these cultures have. Although these myths are different stories from different cultures, they often have traits in common. The creation myths from the Iroquois and the African Bushmen are similar because they both are about creation and they share many elements, but there are also differences in the stories because they are different myths from different cultures.
“The animals of this world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for whites” - Alice Walker. Some of the animals that you see in zoos are not always born in captivity. They can be taken right out of the wild as well.

Some of these names include ‘aldjeringa’ in Arrernte of Central Australia and ‘wongar’ in Arnhem Land. These terms are translated in English as the “Dreaming”, or the “Dreamtime.” This refers to the time when ancestral beings formed the land, the animals and plants, and the laws that keep everything in existence.

He tamed a crow, taught it to say Holly 's name, which at the time was Lulamae, and gave it to her. After she ran away, the crow reverted to being wild and (if Doc is to be believed), the crow called out her name from the woods. Doc also tried to help injured wild birds, including a hawk.

But as Perseus was passing by on his journey home from slaying Medusa, he saw the young maiden crying for help and instantly fell for her. Perseus bravely went towards the creature and using Medusa's head as a weapon, turned the creature into stone. He then saved Andromeda from her confinement and took her to his home to become his wife.(Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature) Perseus' action represents an act of heroism.

Perseus wasn't required to save her and could have died in the process, but did it nonetheless, earning the title as a hero and having the action being recognized as an act of heroism.

As for the other story the lady Eve sinned by eating a piece of fruit from the tree of knowledge, which in return Adam and Eve were evicted. When we look at the Iroquois story the woman fell from the sky world, but caught by birds.

Including the oceans, skies, land and even the first humans to walk the Earth.
