A panda looks like a little bear. It has black and white fur. It lives only in China, so it is called the national treasure of China and protected by the law.
We all see panda on TV or in the zoo. They look stupid and walk slowly, but they are lovely and everyone likes them.
A panda is lucky animal. We Chinese like it, and people of the world like it, too. Now there are China’s pandas in many other countries, such as Japan and the USA…
A panda isn’t a common animal, it is bridge of friendship.
A hart was being pursued by some dogs. It ran into an ox-stall, and hid itself in a truss of hay. Only the tips of its horns could be seen.
Soon after the hunters came to the stable, and asked if anyone had seen the hart. The stable boys looked around, but could see nothing. So the hunters went away.
Later the master came in. He looked around, and saw that something unusual was there.
He pointed to the truss of hay, and asked, "What are those two strange things?" When the stable boys went to look, they discovered the hart.
A doe had lost one of her eyes, and could not see anyone approaching her from one side.
In order to avoid any danger, she always ate on a high cliff near the sea, and looked at the land with her good eye when she was eating.
By this means she could see whenever the hunters approached her on land.
But one hunter found out that she was blind in one eye. He rowed a boat under the cliff, and shot her from the sea.
An eagle was flying in the sky. As soon as it saw a rabbit, it swooped down on its prey.
Suddenly it was hit by an arrow.
It fluttered slowly down to the earth, and blood was pouring from the wound.
When the eagle looked down, he found that the shaft of the arrow was feathered with one of its own plumes.“Alas!”it cried.“We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.”
