What I am about to tell you now is the most incredible thing, scarcely believable, the stuff of dreams. Had I not been here and witnessed this myself I would not believe it either. What greeted me in that clearing was quite one of the strangest sights. A land of animals, but not like any animals you dear reader or I have ever known. These brightly coloured curious critters seem to be somehow, well, mixed up! Half Bee, half Beaver – a sort of Donkey, half frog - a horned swamp donkey perhaps?! I've drawn a few below for you to see...
There are many many brightly coloured species; indeed too many to tell of here and now but one thing I knew for sure was, the boys and girls back at Paultons Park would just love to see these very curious critters.
