Along the way we saw a dead horse. The thing about the horse was that its legs and neck was mauled and its stomach was ripped open. It didn’t look like road kill, it looked like cat kill.
Once we were in the park we were all eyes. Just a little way along the road we found a pond full of hippos. They are amazing. Their heads are huge. We saw one yawn, it was a huge yawn. Then two had a play fight, they opened their mouths and tried to bite each others necks, but their heads got in the way. The hippos look a bit funny because their eyes, ears and nostrils are perched on the top of their heads. Their ears, eyes and nostrils are on the top because then they can still hear, see and smell even when their bodies are completely submerged.

Most of St Lucia is made up of swamp and there’s even a big lake in the middle, so you can imagine that it is teeming with life. In a patch of swamp we saw some buffalo. The buffalo look weird.

In St Lucia there were lots of Red Duiker. A Red Duiker is a small type of antelope that’s about 50cm long. It has a red-brown coat.
Then we saw zebra. I like the way the stripes on their necks go all the way up through their mane.
