Dramatic Dolphins

By Ricky Kanai

Dramatic Dolphins

What has a beak, is a mammal, and lives in the water? It’s a dolphin! As it bursts out of the crystal clear water at 20 miles per hour, it flips over and dives back in the water leaving ripples in the ocean. These fascinating creatures have sleek movement, an amazing life cycle, and a healthy diet.


As you can see, dolphins have precise movement an interesting life cycle, and a balanced diet. In my opinion, coryphaena hippurus are the best fish-like mammal of all. I hope you found dolphins interesting as I did.

Food from Australia:

The Great Australian Pikelets

INGREDIENTS Nutrition For 15 pikelets

1 large egg

  • 1⁄4 cup sugar (use vanilla sugar if you have it, or as some reviewers have suggested ...add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of vanilla)

  • 1⁄2 cup milk (1-2 tbsp extra may be required for correct consistency)

  • 1 cup self raising flour


  1. In a pouring jug, whisk together well the egg, sugar and half of the milk.

  2. Add the flour and mix thoroughly.

  3. Then add milk until the batter is the consistency of a thick cream.

  4. Beat until smooth.

  5. Pour about a soup spoon sized amount onto a preheated lightly greased frypan (You will need to start about medium high heat but after a few rounds you will need to drop it back to medium).

  6. Flip with a spatula when the top is all bubbly (should be a lovely golden colour), and cook the other side.

  7. Remove from pan and pile pikelets up on a plate (cover with a paper towel so they don't go rubbery).

  8. Serve with jam, honey or maple syrup etc.

  9. Enjoy.

Go Fish

In Go Fish, I made a fish tank and chose fish. In my fish tank, I put a filter and some accesories. I also placed an thermometer and gravel. The total cost came to $199.69.Then I multiplied $0.06 for the tax. I had $250,000 and the total with the tax came to $211.67 so I had $38.33 to spend on fish. I chose one black ghost knife fish and two red-tail sharks. Then I added $10.00 for food. I have $2.30 left after buying everything. I hope to have fun with them in the future. It will cost me $44.47 to maintain this yearly.
