Down here we met a friend named Moss. He’s kind of a mix of Indiana Jones and The Crocodile Hunter. He fears nothing, he loves animals, and he thrives on adventure. He’s been to 20 countries!
Last Saturday we were with him and he brought us to a friend of his’ house. The first thing we noticed was a HUGE tree. The base of the trunk was bigger than our car! The branches were more than 30 feet long!
Over walks the owner. The first thing I notice is how old he is. “Welcome!,” he says. He has a strong french accent. He walked with a cane. The man’s name was Rene.
“Follow me,” he says. He brought us to these cages next to each other. I go to the farthest left cage . I rub my eyes to make sure I saw it right and inside I see a toucan! It was amazing! Each cage had it’s own mark of beauty.
In the next cage I see a toucanito, or, small toucan.
And MONKEYS!!! (my personal favorite part)
I take a breath, not knowing what to expect. Slowly I peer inside and this is what I see.
Rene tells us to come inside. We come inside and gasp. Our mouths are as open as Macy’s on Black Friday.
He has the most amazing collection you’ve ever seen. He has Indian masks, dinosaur bones, mammoth teeth, an ancient baby burial pot (with bones still in it), and a METEORITE! This meteorite is about the size of a football but ways about 40 pounds! It’s been in the National Geographic magazine! If this was in a museum, it would be behind 3″ bulletproof glass, and I was able to hold it!
Soon it’s time to go but first we need I picture in front of the huge tree.
PS. Tomorrow I have to go to school. It’s my first day in a new school. I’m kinda nervous. I hope I survive!
