      My favorite animal is the impala, which is a deer-like antelope in Africa that combines the jumping ability of Michael Jordan, the speed of Usain Bolt, and the tough guy attitude of John Cena. They live in small herds where the young impala are grouped in a single “creche” like in a school, and one female is always on the lookout for predators. Males have beautiful long, curving horns and make a deep roaring call to tell other males to stay away from their herd. When things get tough, like in long periods of hot dry weather, they are extremely adaptable and can eat almost any plant and go a long time without water.
