Image description

The image shows six figures, placed in two rows. Thus three are on the left and another three on the right.

The figure above, in the left row, shows us a horse, raised with its front legs at his head level and leaning on its hind legs. The horse is a large animal, it is heavy but slender, it has thin and long legs but strong to carry heavy weights. It has a large, elongated head with two short, sharp ears with a square snout. The body ends with a long, bushy tail on the right side.

The figure in the middle, the left row, shows us a ladybug, seen from above. It is a small insect, with a round body above which are the fragile wings with polka dots on them. It has three pairs of very thin and short legs, on either side of the body. The head at the top is very small and round.

The figure below, the left row, shows a snail coming out of the shell, pointing to the right, side-viewed. The snail is a mollusk, without bones in its body, which crawls on a thin trail of viscous and sticky substance, a kind of mucus that it is secreted by the body so that it can move without rubbing against the ground and injuring itself. The snail carries in its back a round shell, which is its own house, in the shape of a spiral. When it feels threatened, it hides in the shell, and after the rain it comes out of it. The head at the top has two pairs of long, thin antennae through which it can sense what we can feel by smell or hear or touch. The snail usually crawls on leaves or grass and feeds on them.

The figure above, right row, shows us a pig, sitting on four short and thick legs, ended in sharp and split hooves. He is viewed from one side and has his head pointing to the right. The snout is elongated and ends with a round snout. The ears are arched and sharp at the tip. The body is large, heavy and fat, and ends in a spiral or wavy little tail.

The figure in the middle, the right row, shows us a snake or a serpent seen from above. Like the snail, it has no bones in its body, so it crawls on the ground, but at high speed. It can rise vertically when it feels threatened and attacks. He can also jump at high speeds and swallow larger animals than his body. Animals are digested inside the snake’s stomach like any food. The snake crawls in a zigzag trail, from side to side, hence the word serpentine, meaning wavy or resembling a serpent as in form or movement. Some snakes are extremely venomous. Basically, before swallowing the prey, it bites it and then leaves a few drops of venom in it to make it stand still. The tongue of the snake is very long and thin with a split tip.

The figure below, the right row, shows us a strawberry, a small, seasonal fruit, meaning we can enjoy it fresh only during the summer. It is round and slightly elongated and narrow towards the base, downwards, as in a triangle with the tip downwards.
