Fauna - amazing! I think as a start, how nature is diverse and unique, so come to the wildest enthusiasm! How did all the animals are different from each other, but at the same time constitute a single, inseparable and unique link! Of course, the blue whale - the largest animal in the world, no one doubts, but I would probably be very scared if I saw him live! It's great being, it can only be in one motion to knock the whole spirit of us little people! And because of this I respect animals even more, because they are beautiful and self-sufficient!
