What Am I? Poems

I live the trees in the Caribbean.
I eat meat and insects and leaves and mud.
I move by flying and walking and jumping about.
When I have babies I have them out of my ears
They come out as eggs.
I am afraid of foxes because they try to pinch my eggs and eat me

I am a daylon.
Martin Hutchinson

I live in a big rain forest with lots of trees around the place
and a big pond and I live in a big tree.

I eat big fish and crabs and I drink sea water.

I move by flying and running around everywhere
I am very fast.

I lay eggs that come of my mouth
I lay my eggs in a patch of grass

I am scared of piranhas as they will eat anything

I am a big cheaterhawk
Rohan Godfrey

I live in a very secret, beautiful rainforest.
I can see a waterfall when I wake up
The water is clean and there is no litter
I eat slugs and snails
I drink mud
For a treat I can dig under the ground
Where it is quiet
I like to swim best
My wife has given birth
To seven babies
Out of her ear
She puts them in the water
When they are born
To clean them
Then they float to the top
I an afraid of piranhas.
What am I ?
I am a xynoltynash.

I live in tall grass
And in water where it is cool

I hide from humans and cars.
What am I ?
I am a Mojo.
