Hi ellen! :) I'm a little bit afraid of snakes as well but there are no snakes where I live, luckily. Are there any snakes where you live? I didn't understand what you mean when you say snakes are 'dogmatic animals'. Could you explain it again? Thanks!

I love animals above everything; I find them our best friends and I'm sad to say this, but they are unprotected,and we should take care about them. I have the Persian cat at home and I'm thinking of taking a chihuahua. Yes, I know that cats and dogs have never been on good terms, but I hope my cat will accustom on this dog, because I like chihuahuas so much, and I think it's gonna be a birthday present from my parents. I'm so looking forward to that moment.
I like animals in general, but cats are my favourite. And I like horses, dogs, rabbits and every animal.
Last month I signed in one association which main aim is the animal protection. In my country there are many abandoned animals, and this association is like an asile where we take care of them and help them to recover. I really like this job, if I could name it like that, and I'm happy of having the opportunity to do something for those lovely creatures, who give so much love, and don't want anything for repayment.

Cobra is the king of snakes. I like a lot the way he atacks and protect itself. I am not affraid from snakes because they are dangerous just when you try to catch them!

I am not such an animal lover and my favourite animals are the cat and the dog. the cat is my favourite animal because it is so cute and if you feel alone just keep it close to yourself and this will helpp you, if you need someone to protect you the dog is the right animal for you.

Hi happiest-girl-alive!

Thanks for your comment. It made me laugh to think of a snake chasing you! It's true that a lot of people are scared of snakes. Why do you think that is?

I like watching documentary videos about animals, especially clever ones, likes snakes. They're very cunning. But, honesty, I'm afraid of them. That's called ophiophobia - popular with most people. I remember that when I was 5 years old, a grass-snake chased me. Fortunately, I had time to run into the house.
