Top 5 Animal Heroes

It's time for some heart-warming stories about animal heroes. Have you ever been somewhere in the wilderness when something dangerous threatened your life? Maybe you survived because of the help of an animal hero! Animal heroes are animals that have saved humans or other animals from danger. Here are Kidzworld's Top 5 Animal Heroes.

Dolphins

Some people say that dolphins are the smartest animals on the planet. They are well-known for saving humans from shark attacks. There are many stories about people who are swimming in the ocean suddenly finding themselves being circled by a pod of dolphins, preventing a hungry shark from getting close. Here are some examples:

  • October 30, 2004: in New Zealand dolphins saved lifeguards training of the coast of Whangarei
  • August 2, 1996: A British tourist named Martin Richardson was saved by dolphins in the Gulf of Akaba
  • August 28, 2007: A surfer was saved by dolphins in Monterey, California

There is a famous dolphin named Filippo in Italy. Filippo became famous for saving the life of a 14-year-old boy named Davide Ceci in 2000. Davide had fallen from his father's boat and Filippo pushed him back up to the surface before he drowned.

Gorillas

Binti Jua was a famous zoo gorilla in Brookfield, Illinois who saved the life of a little boy who fell from the top of a 20-foot wall. The boy hit his head and landed unconscious. Just before another aggressive gorilla approached the boy, Binti Jua scared him away and cradled the little boy to safety.

This exact same situation also happened in a New Jersey zoo in 1986, where a gorilla named Jambo rescued a little 5-year-old boy who fell of a high wall into the dangerous gorilla pit.

Elephants

In 2003 in Empangeni, Zululand, 11 elephants rescued a herd of antelope who were about to be killed by humans hunters. The elephants approached the large cage that the antelope had been captured in and one of the elephants went up to the locks. She carefully undid all the latches with her trunk, swung the gate open and stood back with her herd. The herd watched the antelope leave the cage and dart off before they walked off into the night.

Polar Bears

There is a polar bear named Tuk who used to live in Vancouver, Canada's Stanley Park zoo. In 1983 a young man threw a kitten into the polar bear's pool. Tuk rose, stretched, and then slid into the pool, surfacing moments later with the kitten held gently between his teeth. He then lay by the pool with the tiny kitten held protectively between his paws and licked it dry.

Dogs

Man's best friend... dogs! They have been in thousands of stories about rescuing and saving the lives of people and other animals. Dogs not only save people and animals from danger, but some dogs have jobs as firedogs and police dogs - these working dogs help firefighters and the police do their work.

I found the greatest riddle ever (credits to Ted-Ed), and I want to see if anyone can solve it without looking up the answer. THE RIDDLE OF THE ALIEN OVERLORDS. You and your team have crashed-landed on an ancient planet. The only way off is to appease its three alien overlords, TEE, EFF, and ARR, by giving them the correct artifacts. Unfortunately, you don't know who is who. From an inscription, you learn that you may ask three yes or no questions, each addresses to any one lord. Tee's answers are always true. Eff's answers are always false.  And Arr's answers are random. But, there's a problem. You've deciphered the language enough to ask any question, but you don't know which of the two words 'ozo' and 'ulu' means yes, and which means no. How can you still figure out which alien is which?

Fear: The Emotion of Death   You can't see me, But I'm there. I'm in your tears, I'm everywhere. I stalk you in your shadow, So stealthy and no slack. I'm made of dark matter, You better watch your back. You can hear me, I'm your beating heart. Inside is emptiness, Tearing you apart. You shiver and shake, At the sound of my name. I engulf you, drown you, Surround you with shame.   I've seen destruction, More than anyone. I'm darker than, The world with no sun. The agony arises, There's so much red. Most of it coming, From the dead. I become your shadow, I'm a terrible sight. And when you see me, You're frozen with fright. I'll grab you by your neck, You'll be thrashing around. You're crying, shrieking, Until there's no sound.   I feel so sad, So empty, so. . . Alone. So you'll feel the same, You'll be on your own. And as long as you are with me, At the point of no return. You will go crazy. You'll crash and burn.   Then you understand, With your slowing of breath. That I am Fear, The Emotion of Death.

[Warning: Boring]     It all started on one night where I was doing a quiz on Playbuzz. They were fun, but my mom thought they were inappropriate. Searching the web, she found this site and saw it had quizzes on it. They weren't that fun, honestly. And this site? It was kidzworld. I forced her to let me make an account, and we did. No status. No bio. No mood. No picture. I swore to not go in chatroom or chat with people, because apparently they could be an old man in a basement. I nodded in agreement, saying that she could trust me. Of course, I did some quizzes and went off. That night, we went to bed of course. Now major time skip.    It's, let's say, three nights later. About midnight, and my iPod is next to me. I decided to go and check out "kids world". Clicking into "login", I guessed my password since I really forgot it. Score! Got it right. Anyways, I look around. Forums. Quizzes. Games. And then something spotted my eye.  Chatroom.  Clicking on it, I typed in these exact words.  "Hello?" And that's how my journey started. A few days later, maybe a week, I was introduced to the "boards". Clicking on it, I immediately saw the Roleplay section. Unknowing what it was, I created "Lemini The Witch" and got into an argument with someone who I will not name((*Cough* Gpc78 )). Anyways, I deleted the post. My first Roleplay I made was Crystal Heights. Noobish, stupid, horrible. But surprisingly, people joined. This is where my soon-to-be-best- friend, Ivy, entered my virtual life. And my other best friends. first message: "Are you going to post? We're waiting for you two lovebirds! ;)". Conversation continued. And continued. Our bond grew and grew, until we had reached 100 pages of private messages. 100. Pages. I couldn't believe it at first. 100 pages of messages with my soon-to-be-best-friend. As most of you know, a few months ago, I created several hundred opportunities for advanced roleplayers who were not acknowledged to go through the gates of Roleplaying Heaven. Including me. I helped them by creating the Top Ten Roleplayers, and "accidently" tagging every single advanced Roleplayer. Even Musicgenius showed up. This is a process in the soon to be made   "Roleplaying Council", which I am a part of. During this, me and Ivy were nearing 300 pages of private messages. Crystal Heights was over, but my life was going uphill, closer to opportunity. Even in real life, my hopes were flying closer to the clouds. A few months after this, my faith in the Lord started to fade. I am 10, I started to realize the true meaning of the Bible and what it's message was. I was stuck in the middle of what seemed like a tornado, being swept over to one side, but then jerked back to the other, while being hurt in the progress. I was tearing myself apart. That's went the tornado stopped. It was just rain. I was closer to finding out my true religion. And that was atheism. I felt like I had to have a religion, like something had to have created the universe. My heart was leaning towards Christianity, but my mind was going to atheism. Go with your mind, not your heart, was my instinct. Me and Ivy were nearing 500 pages of private messages. Little did we know that I would be deleting my account and coming back as Ruby Phoenix. As the days passed, my hatred for my user grew. I finally decided to message Jordan that "Please delete my account". I don't know if it was a good thing or bad mistake I did that, but it's too late now. After this,  I felt like my roleplaying creativity was fading away. My titles weren't original like my old ones. I had changed a lot.  And I mean a lot.  On Animal Jam, I was afraid of deleting a buddy. Now I do it without hesitation. I don't cry as much. Like a shell has grown around my emotions. Thanks to the internet, I've grown tougher.  A few months later, my days were, and are, gloomier. I was, and still am, always stressed about tomorrow. If I have too much work. If I can't do things right. If I mess up. If I do anything wrong. I am confused. Why am I here? Where do we go after we die? Why didn't I just continue to not exist? What is my purpose? What's my religion? So many questions for a 10 year old in my fizzing, overloading mind.    I just wanted to share this, just to.
