问：What’s your favorite animal? Why?
Well, my favorite wild animal is the Arctic fox, also known as the snow fox, because of their snowy fur. I love them because of the way they hunt. You know, they first track the trace on the snow and when they find something, they jump high, and then dive into the snow with their head down and catch the prey. It’s an adorable and intelligent predator.
问：Have you ever had a pet before?
Yes, I have. When I was a kid, I used to buy ducks, hamsters, and goldfishes at the gate of my primary school and keep them as pets. I believe a lot of Chinese children have the same experience. But, to be honest, I was never a good keeper, most of them would die within 3 or 4 days either because I forgot to feed them or I gave them too much food.
问：What is the most popular animal in China?
Well, it must be the panda, which has been the national treasure for almost a century. They are indolently lazy and spend most of their day eating bamboos and snoozing, but they look super adorable and fluffy. In addition, red-crowned cranes are the most popular anmials among the elderly, because they have a very good meaning in Chinese culture, representing health and longevity.
问：Where do you prefer to keep your pet, indoors or outdoors?
I prefer to keep my pets at home because there are a lot of feral cats and homeless stray dogs living outdoors, and many of these animals may carry diseases that can be passed on to my pets if they come into contact with each other. Besides, there may be potential dangers outside, like parasites and rat poison in corners, which can be fatal to my pets.
