Adorable but Deadly!

One of the world’s most bizarre animals is called the Hispaniolan Solenodon.

It looks a little bit like an overgrown shrew – it’s quite big, has a long thin snout and can attack passing insects with its deadly poisonous bite!

This nocturnal animal can only be found in two countries of the world: the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Researchers say more needs to be done to protect these creatures as they are under threat from deforestation and hunters.

Where was their "think before I say it?" so it does really depend on the bully/cyberbully and the method they use.Nope.

Before I get started with the prologue I just want to  let you guys know this has not been completely edited yet. I'm going to be posting them in chapters/sections. Prologue The air was still crisp, though the explosion had happened weeks ago. But then again, nothing seemed like it was a few weeks ago. The explosion had come out of nowhere; nobody really knew what happened. Some say somebody left their stove on. Others say somebody made it happen on purpose. I don’t know what to believe, I don’t even know if anyone else is alive. All I know is that my parents died in the explosion. I don’t know if I have any sibling, aunts, uncles. I’m surprised I’m alive, my clothes are still singed from the fire. I haven’t found any supplies. I don’t even know which way I’m supposed to go. I doubt you would want to know my name, but in case you were wondering it’s Blake...Blake Hensworth.
