The grizzly is the star of our little town in the mountains. Many people visit here for this kind of strong large brown bear. When a grizzly grows up, it may become as heavy as 680 kg. But never think this gigantic animal moves slowly. In fact, the grizzly can run as fast as 55 km an hour.

Though grizzlies look quite big and dangerous, they eat not only meat, but also flowers and grasses. Fish is their favorite food. On summer nights, they enjoy catching fish in the rivers. That is why people usually come watching grizzlies in this season.

Now the number of grizzlies is getting smaller because they have been killed by people who sell grizzly body parts as medicine. Many people of our town are worried about this and have asked for help to save our big friends.

What comes to your mind when you hear the wordtwins”? Born on the same day? Looking almost the same? Or having the same hobbies? Well, I have a twin brother who was born on a different day from me. We do not look very much alike and we are always interested in different things.

Twelve years ago, my brother, Wayne, was born at eleven fifty-eight on the night of May 28. Five minutes later, I was bornon May 29. Since the time we were born, I have always been heavier and stronger than Wayne, so people usually think I am the older brother.

But Wayne is always smarter than I. He loves reading and learns many things quickly. He knows a lot about animals, although he does not spend much time with our dogs and birds. He knows a lot about bicycles, but never likes to ride bikes as much as I do.

Though we are very different, I love my brother very much. I hope both of us can have a happy life in the future.
