I think this is an easy topic for me and I would like to thank you for this nice topic. My favorite animal is the cow and it is much more beneficial than other animals. Cattle would be the accurate term to use but this animal is colloquially known as cows. Since I have always called it cow, I would like to refer it so.
It gives us milk which is a nutritious protein supply for us. It provides us with meat and the leather equipment is made from its skin. In some countries, the cow is used for ploughing the land and for farming purposes. The teeth and bones of this animal are sometimes used to make comb, buttons and other useful things. In some areas, the dung is used as fertilizer and to burn fires. In some parts of India, cows have significant religious meaning.
The cow is a four-footed animal and its skin is thick. Grasses are their main food and they are mostly domestic animals. The weight of adult cattle always depends on the breed and it can vary to a great extent. As per an online article that I read many years ago, cows have a well-developed sense of taste and they can distinguish the four primary tastes which are sweet, sour, salty and bitter. Interestingly, their hearing power is more acute than horses! Cows occupy a unique role in human history and they are living near humans and been domesticated since at least the early neolithic age. The production of milk, which is also made into cheese, butter, yogurt, and other dairy products provide an important part of the food supply for many of the world’s people.
I like this animal mostly because of its closeness to humans and its usefulness for us. In my childhood, we had 5-6 cows at our home and they were very friendly. They had been very helpful to us. I like it as it is a very gentle and sober animal. I also enjoy it when I see a cow is ruminating and giving milk to her calf.

People love different kinds of animals for different reasons. Some love them because they look so “cute” and adorable while others love them because of their rather smart and loyal character. Anyway, like many others, I also have my favorite animal, about which, I will describe very shortly.
The name of my favorite animal is “deer”, and they belong to the Cervidae family of mammals. Other members of the family include Elk, reindeer, chital, roe and etc. Depending on where we live, we can find over 90 species of deer around the world. Deer are lean and long-legged animals. Deer species range from very large to very small. The smallest deer is the Southern pudu which can weigh only about 20 lbs. (9 kilograms) and gets to be only about 14 inches (36 centimeters) tall when fully grown. On the other hand, the largest deer is the moose which can grow up to 6.5 feet (2 meters) from hoof to shoulder and weigh around 1,800 lbs. (820 kg). Their typical coloring ranges from reddish-brown to grey-brown with the cream-colored underside.
Deer live in lots of different places in the world including Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. They don’t live in other continents because of their extreme weather. They usually live in or close to forests in small groups, called herds, with other deer. Some Deer sometimes even make their own beds out of plants! Anyway, I like deer for a number of reasons, but the main reason, of course, is their sheer speed.
Anyway, deer are my favorite animals because they look so distinctly beautiful with some of their unique features. They are also my favorite animal because they are never violent around us humans, or for that matter, with any other animals! In fact, they are very social, with one group of them watching over another, but shy and very wary creatures, features which make them look very “adorable”. Finally, deer are my favorite animal also because they are strictly “vegetarian”, eating grass and plants that are mostly redundant, and thus helping maintain some kind of ecological balance around us.

I like all animals in general, but I think my favorite would be a dog. A dog is a domestic animal and can be seen in almost all houses and streets of my country. The best part about dogs is that apart from being a great keeper, they also shower love on their owners. A person owning a dog gets love and care from the dog and the dog makes sure that no one harms his or her owner.
Although, most people like dogs, everyone has different choices as there are various breeds of dogs such as pugs, a golden retriever, bulldog, and German shepherd, etc. Interestingly, the characteristics of dogs depend on their breed. For instance, a bulldog is more aggressive than a pug and is more likely to bite you. Even more, the food requirements vary with breed. As a matter of fact, a smaller breed would require more energy and food than a larger or a medium-sized breed. One needs to know the breed of the dog and provide the food accordingly.
A dog surely becomes a part of the family and often it has been seen that they get weak in the absence of their owners. The connection between dogs and humans is almost electric and I believe one must surely have one.

Earth is full of different creatures and various organisms. Humans are the top of the food chain on this planet and share the planet with other living organisms. Animals form a big part of our ecosystem and help us preserve nature and restore balance in the ecosystem. There are various majestic creatures that inhabit our lands but the one that fascinates me the most are snow leopards.
Snow leopards are solitary creatures and they are found in the entire Himalayan range and central Asia. These beasts are a thing of beauty and their distinctive fur and color easily differentiate them from an African or Asian leopard. Their coat is white and grey in color and it helps them camouflage with local surroundings. Their thick coat helps them stay warm in chilling Himalayan weather. They are very shy creatures and perhaps that is the reason why very less is known about their behavior and habitat. Their diet mostly consists of antelopes and Himalayan goats that are found in abundance in the mountainous terrain.
Sadly the human-animal conflict has caught up with these beautiful animals too and today they are considered as critically endangered by the World Wild Life Federation. There are less than 5000 snow leopards out in the wild and drastic measures are being taken to conserve their numbers. There is a famous documentary recently made by the BBC and its titled Blue planet. The crew filmed for almost 4 extensive years and captured some great footage of the majestic creatures. For the first time in history, they were able to capture footage of a snow leopard making a kill. I feel sad that we as humans are not doing enough to protect these animals and are adamant upon destroying their habitat.
