I’m a Green Tree ant and I mainly live in the forests of Australia. We ants are incredibly strong built for working hard and long. We must all work within the community to survive.
We bears live a solitary life but when it comes to hunting we take it as a reunion. We love to catch and eat fish in the river where we spend a lot of our time but the forest is also our home. We have a lot of animal neighbours such as buffalos, seagulls, coyotes but we never really like to meet with wolves. Everyone is a bit different, because everyone lives differently. That’s why it is better not mingle with others and stay with your own kind.
