Sample Answer of Talk About a Time When You Were Really Close to a Wild Animal

Once, when I was with my grandparents in the village, we went to the farm, and I happened to chance upon a snake. It was brown with shiny skin. It wasn’t very long, so I guess it was probably young. As I slithered over the grasses, my interest was piqued. Perhaps because us young people wanting to have a careful look at it scared it, it tried to get further away from us. My grandfather, who had more knowledge about snakes, told us it feeds on other animals such as toads and frogs, as well as fowls. I found it fascinating how it is able to smoothly glide over surfaces and how shiny its skin is. I was told that many such snakes often appear, but nobody quite likes them because they’re dangerous and that they steal fowls or the egg of fowls from the people. For me, however, it was a time I appreciated the beauty of nature.
