Year 6 – Information Texts

Year 6 have been writing information texts about animals which we invented ourselves. We used technical vocabulary, formal tone, varied openers, and included paragraphs on diet, habitat and appearance. Here are some extracts.

Interestingly -although uncommon- the Colgar is native to America. Inhabiting in vast areas from Northwestern Canada and even ranges to Patagonia. Cougars often mill around in packs (roughly up to 15); a minority live as hermits. Additionally, they dwell upon Canyons, under root of trees and construct dens below rocky ledges which enable shelter from the hot climate. Causing little disturbance to humans. These canines are devoted to family. However this hybrid can become very territorial and in rare cases will fight over territory. Interestingly, the Grand Canyon National park is a unique tourist attraction where over 50% of the Colfgar population has been sighted.



The Biswantah is extremely rare.This is due to the fact that humans are hunting them.Biswanath is a cross between a head of a bison a body of a swan and a tail of a cheetah.The biswantah is a very quick animal that can easily out pace an lion.Its cheetah provides balance so its able to sleep on trees.They use their horns to punch down trees to get food. Also their male will fight using their horns.There are six hundred and thirty two in the world.They are often hunted for their horns and their swan coat.Biswantah spends 70% of their time eating food every day.

The Biswantah live in urban areas.They inhabit large trees,where they build their nest.The nest is typically built by the female while the male goes to get food.They nest of wood metal and strangely enough mirrors.



Explorers have been keeping tabs on them as they are almost extinct; they have reported that only 6,000 Dognos are left in the wild. Some people have been finding them and sending them to zoos to keep them safe from any unwanted predators. It is vital that they have a hills, enough water and food which would keep it alive.

The dezepodo is an animal that lives in colder places. Most of them are found in Antarctica, but some people have apparently seen them in western russia. Approximately 90% of them live in Antarctica but the other 10% live mainly in western Russia but others will most likely live in other places as well. They very often have to travel to other places as the arctic doesn’t have much food.

The Dustorse can be broken in and therefore trained. That involves a similar process to that of a horse. First, a bridle is sized and fitted. Secondly, a saddle is placed on then horse’s back. After that, the Dustors in lunged to get exercised.

However,though they are uncommon,the red wolfox is easy to recognize;as it is a mixture of two different savage animals:the red fox and the wolf.They have the fox’s untidy,scruffy,ginger-orange cloak of fur covering its back,a fluffy,bushy tail and the razor-sharp claws,which is used upon its prey.Whilst being one of the uniquest animal on land,the red wolfox is also one of the most tiniest.While adults are about the size of a new-born pony,juveniles and infants are just approximately like to a kitten.Furthermore,some red wolfox have faint brown specks on their legs,which,for some reason,is rumoured to be a symbol of continuing good fortune.



The Spider Pig, although they are one of the largest mammals, they can scale any tree in seconds. Amazingly, the Spider can grow to the size of a rhino and when born they are only the size of a racoon! Since they are so large the Spider Pigs don’t have many predators, they only have the common ones like snakes and alligators. The Spider Pigs grow claws at around the age of seven. They are extremely protective of their juveniles and will put themselves before their children. Since the Spider Pigs are required to climb for survival, the young will learn to climb within the first twelve hours of being alive.



However,these majestic powerful and stunning have recently been in decline ;however, this is no cause for concern as it is only a very small minority of the population who are affected and all of this is down to infighting amongst different packs .The decline is down by 2% yet still thousands of cubs are born each year .These elusive creatures are one of the most respected creatures amongst Asia yet so little is known about them.



Although it cannot compare to animals such as the renowned Peregrine Falcon, the Pandjaguox can run in short, powerful bursts of up to 60kmph. Furthermore, a platoon (collective noun) of these wondrous creatures can perform the most incredible evening symphony. This melodious chorus has the potential to last far into the night. Additionally, this animal’s agility grants it the ability to climb tall trees; however, there have been cases (usually harmless) where they fall down.



Sadly these creatures are endangered and are struggling to survive in the wild and numbers are declining rapidly so if you can visit wwwwwwwwdonate.save_the to donate and play your part in saving the axafrogle.



Amazingly the deerbooster can grow their legs to approximately 2 and a half feet. Having long legs is an advantage as they are able to run swifter. Some deerboosters have a tinge of mauve in their rooster tail. On the deerboosters legs, they have the colours: white, brown and beige; interestingly, they have a bunny head, which is a great advantage due to the ability to store food in their cheeks. This fantastic creature is also unique relating to its odd talents…



Most of these rare creatures have been spotted in the woodlands. They live in pre-dug burrows, dug up by mostly meerkats. A little known fact, they sleep for 15 hours. Despite that fact that 49% of their life is spent sleeping, this creature is conscious for 9 hours in the day. Fortunately, its common to find dug up burrows, that can be a big benefit



Students at the university of brown have been tracking the cafrican dog for approximately 6 months now. 753 are left roaming within the wild. As this animal is on the very brink of extinction, due to the collective and excessive amount of help ;furthermore, to donate £10, £20 or £50, call 0776 400 375 between 5am and 8pm (this call will only answer if you are from the uk.)



The majority of Cacheetangs are mainly found in the plains of Africa lazing around rocks and under the shade of trees. While very few dig with their paws to create a borrow to avoid contact with people because humans will kill them for their exquisite fur coat and for their tail a some people think that it has magical healing powers, however; killing Cacheetangs became illegal in 1987 due to there short numbers in the world.

Ramlea’s – like lions – are carnivores, having a surprisingly strict diet to only consuming meat. They will survey their prey daily from great heights then descend from the towering cliffs and wrestle it to the ground. The males can devour up to 38 kilograms in a day; however usually only within 20 to 25 kilos, hunting larger mammals such as antelope or zebra. Occasionally, Ramleas will scavenge for carrion to feed on rather than hunting for their prey. (This is the first step of hunting juveniles will achieve.)



The Lemontah, although hard to find, are easily identifiable by three distinct animal parts. It has

The head of a lemur, body of a wooly spider monkey and tail of a cheetah. Because of its massive size they weigh up to 11 kilograms and are 1 meter in length. They have a good sense of smell to find food for their young. Additionally, between the age of 10-11 years old the spots on their tail become more prominent . They reproduce at roughly the age of 20-21 years old.



With numbers rapidly declining, the WWF is trying their hardest to put laws in place to protect the Polarboubou from near extinction. Additionally, scientists are secretly sedating and micro chipping the few hundred that remain to keep track of numbers and make sure they are safe.



The vast majority of Cafrican dogs are native to Africa; however, some inhabit Savannahs in America. Interestingly, they use their tremendous paws to gouge burrows underground, (Cafrican dogs do this to hide from predators). They live in platoons of 6 and stay together throughout the day. Furthermore, these creatures are extremely agile when hunting or sprinting during activities.



After a decade of studying these amazing creatures, the scientists of the NSIZ (national science institute of Zambia) have placed the numbers of Bengal Bleebeest in the 5000-6000 range with numbers increasing over the most recent years. Most of them live in 4 big groups; however, around 50 have been sighted as a separate group migrating on their own. If you want to help the magnificent Bleebeest click the link in the reference section of this article to donate now.



The Greeat Wolf is an uncommon creature to be observed ; furthermore, it is one of the most peculiar creatures known to man or women. It has many distinctive features and talents making it an extraordinary animal!



The Lefox is a very rare creature and it is the combination of a fox and a leopard.THey have the distinct leopard print tail and the body and head of a fox. The Lefox has abnormally large ears for sensing anything that is 12-13 miles away!

The Lefox is the size of a normal fox. Unusually, the Lefox’s tail is the same size as it furthermore, they use it to curl around themselves to keep warm in cold weather.

Juveniles are about the size of a cat, the leopard print tale only develops for the age of 3 months to a year.



Wolfoxes are found almost exclusively in Canadian Cities though a few have been known to inhabit the north of canada and farms.They live in Burrows called dens which are dug by there powerful front claws by the entire family. Consequently large intricate dens are commeson.Location of the dens are often found in hedgerows and the pine trees. Amazingly Wolfoxes are prepared to travel long distances to find food, therefore the largewst group of Wolfoxes are in northern canada.



All Antelopeas are strict herbivores, Furthermore, their diet consists of traveling over broad distances to find the rare dry shrub or wilted patch of grass. Interestingly, these unusual creatures have been known to go for days without food, Although peculiar they will also occasionally wander into nearby neighborhoods and vandalize farm markets.



All Wooly Bightahs are omnivorous creatures due to their cheetah/bison hybrid. This particular animal favors antelope, which it will stalk, pounce on, then kill with its razor-sharp teeth. Though if not available they will go for smaller animals like aardvarks and meerkats. Berries are also a part of their daily diet; however, blueberries are extremely poisonous to it and can be fatal. Males can eat up to 39 kilograms a day but on average will only consume 28 kg. Moreover, these huge creatures will imbibe several gallons of water a day, which sadly, during the dry seasons, means they will fight their own kind or even other animals for control over the water hole.



Interestingly, the dustorse is native to the UK but is usually found in the New Forest. They have been known to inhabit forests and open fields. Like many dustorses, they prefer the wet and muddy weather as they like to roll to stand their ground, they don’t like it too hot as they can overheat easily and become stressed. However, avoiding humans is the Dustorses’ number one priority as they are nervous creatures and are afraid that humans may harm them.

Sadly, these fascinating one-of-a-kind creatures are partially becoming extinct; you can help stop this situation. 32% of Bhinotions have died from Global warming, and if you want to help, go to or text 0011 to make a donation! Who knows? Maybe, just maybe, you could save a dying creature’s life.



For many years, scientists have been placing trackers (when they are asleep) on Zoxmur and have been putting them in captivity to do DNA tests and to study which means that there are only 300 roaming forests in the world.Luckily, more and more are being released from captivity, so just maybe, they will be spotted in a neighborhood near you in the not-so-distant future!
