Horton Hatches the Egg “I mean what I said and I said what I meant… An elephant’s faithful One hundred per cent!” (Seuss 11) . Going through a terrible storm, a frosty winter, humiliated by his friends, and sent to a circus- despite the disastrous circumstances he encountered, just as he promised, Horton the elephant protected Mayzie the bird’s egg. Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr.Seuss is widely read aloud by parents and teachers, for its important qualities of faith and patience it displays. However, among nuclear families with adopted children, it may be controversial of whether the book is to be read to their children or not, for the story creates a strong sense of connection to the topic of adoption. The story starts off with Mayzie, a lazy bird, complaining of how weary she is, having to stay at her nest all day to warm her egg up.
Buttercup is born with potential but is not the “fairest in the land”. The very first sentence of the tale states that “the most beautiful woman in the world was a French scullery maid named Annette.” Annette’s fall from beauty is due to chocolate which caused her to go “from delicate to whopping”. Her plight is followed by Aluthra of Bengal with skin “of a dusky perfection” being ruined by the pox plague. Adela Terrell then assumes the title until “she had begun to fret”. Buttercup was “barely in the top twenty, and that primarily on potential” for she is an absolute ragamuffin as a child.
Ava the Elephant Update – See What Happened After Shark Tank Ava the Elephant Before Shark Tank Ava the Elephant, originally called Emmy the Elephant, is a medicine dispenser that eliminates the scare many young children get when taking oral medicine. It was founded by Tiffany Krumins when one of the children she was watching would refuse to take medicine. With a background in medicine, Tiffany knew that many parents faced similar issues and that children weren’t afraid of the medicine, but rather the process. Tiffany set out to solve this issue and was able to create a prototype of Emma the Elephant with some basic supplies from the store such as sponges and fabric. Having no background in product development, however, Tiffany faced many challenges that early entrepreneurs do such as how early a patent was needed or how to get into retailers.
The childhood dream of owning a pet monkey or tiger is a common one, but that’s all that owning an exotic animal should be: a dream. Over 10,000 exotic animals are trafficked into the United States each year, a multi-million-dollar industry on the black market. Owning a wild animal may seem fun and exciting, but with the ownership of such a creature, dangerous consequences follow. The ownership of an exotic animal not only puts the owner 's life at risk, but the animal 's and the environments. There is a common theme among people that it 's humanity 's responsibility to preserve the world we live in, yet there are more tigers in captivity than there are in the wild.
Introduction: Have you ever wanted a pet tiger, bear, elephant, or exotic animal alike? If you answered yes, you are not alone. Carson Barylak, a campaign officer for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, estimates that there are over 10,000 big cats in private hands, and that is just a conservative estimate. The truth is, nobody knows exactly how many exotic animals are in private hands, which means few people are keeping tabs, thus leaving substantial space for abuse and mistreatment. Although rescue organizations, such as Big Cat Rescue and The Humane Society, are working to address the abuse of these animals, exotic mammals are still mistreated daily.

When I was 13 years old, I accidentally stumbled upon a cave while playing in the woods. I found a really weird vase ,but when I picked it up something glowing flew out of it. The next day I realised something was off, my hair was slowly fading to the deepest black you could imagine, my nails also grew a few centimeters. As I aged, I did some research, and found that the cave was enchanted. I didn’t bother telling anyone, because I knew no one would believe me.
The animal lifespan can be shorten, if the zoos or organization does not provide enough space and health care. From the journal I have ready by Cohn, the case study of elephants in the zoo that has been a controversial debate through times. Just by looking at the whole image, in wild, the average of an elephant that walked per day is 50 miles, but in zoos, they were not. The zoo chained the elephants all day long; therefore, the elephants stood still for many hours. Moreover, some of the zoo walked the elephants before the gates open.
The text states “a yearlong Mother Jones investigation shows that Ringling elephants spend most of their long lives either in chains or on trains, under constant threat of the bullhook, or ankus- the menacing tool used to control elephants.” although Feld Entertainment states that, ‘ "they are trained through positive reinforcement, a system of repetition and reward that encourages an animal to show off its innate athletic abilities"’(Nelson). Feld Entertainment (a live show production company which owns a number of traveling shows) tried to convince the public that their animals are put through positive and rewarding training. However, a lengthy investigation proves otherwise, noting that animals spend nearly their entire life in captivity and are in fact trained using inhumane methods. “Circus training methods include

Actually, we have nothing more to do than “close [our] eyes and see” and then with a tip of the magic wand, we will be gone from “just [us] to royalty” (Grady and Panzer). But is it really this easy? For many young girls the Disney princesses serve as idols.
