Australia has a lot of lovely animals. You cannot find them anywhere else in the world. The most famous ones are kangaroos and koalas(树袋熊).
The kangaroo is the symbol of Australia. They have large eyes and ears. They don’t walk, they jump. They use their strong back legs. They can jump at up to 74 kilometers per hour. They can go over nine meters in one jump!
Kangaroo mothers have pouches(育儿袋) to carry their babies. The babies stay inside to get milk and keep warm.
Kangaroos are everywhere in Australia. They are on TV, in books and in the shops. The government even wants to put them on passports(护照).
But do you know that millions of kangaroos are killed every year? There are too many of them.
There are about 20 to 25 million kangaroos in Australia. That’s more than the number of people in the country!
Some kangaroos go hungry because there is not enough food to eat. They break into farms for food. Farmers are very angry with them.
The koala is another famous Australian animal. They look like bears, and have small eyes and big noses. They eat leaves from eucalyptus, where they spend most of their time.
Koalas have a special smell. They use it to mark their home—“This is my place, you can’t come in!”
Like kangaroos, a koala baby lives in its mother’s pouch.
But koalas have fewer places to live in. There are about 100,000 koalas in Australia. There is a law to keep them safe.

The size and shape of your ears show your character more than any other parts of the face. Other parts of the face change shape as we get older, but ears do not change their shape. They only change in size.
Reading people’s character from their ears is an old science. In very old times people thought that a person with big ears had a good and generous character. They thought that a person with pale (nearly white), small ears was dangerous. They also thought that the shape of the ear showed whether a person was musical or not. Today, too, many people believe that the size and the shape of the ear help you know if a person is musical.
Ears are all different, and each characteristic has a meaning. Next time when you look at a person, see if his ears are large or small. Look at the lobes( the lowest part of the ear). Are they attached(连着) to the face? Ears that are always red mean a person may easily get angry, or he/she just has high blood pressure(高血压). Ears that are always cold and pale mean a person has a nervous character. And a big inside hole of the ear means a person is musical.

All people like giant pandas. They only live in China. Giant pandas are beautiful. They are black and white. They look like bears. They are quiet and peaceful. They eat bamboo shoots and leaves. Now there are only about a thousand pandas in the world. Their number is getting smaller and smaller, because their living areas are becoming farmlands. Also, people hunt them for their fur. Since they are in great danger, we must take actions to protect them, or there will be no giant pandas in the world.
