only acts that way

less than goats

HAROLD
a friend of mine
even though he is human
Harold belongs in a zoo

HONEYBEE

the sting comes later

INSECT
representative of the insect kingdom

IGUANA
fictitious reptile name coined
by Central and South American poets
to rhyme with marijuana

JAGUAR

you don’t want to ride in

JELLYFISH

couldn’t sell

KANGAROO

a pogo stick

a tourist industry icon,
endless National Geographic moments,
posters that say, “Hang In There, Buddy”
