Review Amazing Animals Page 70 Exercise #1 Shamu Shamu is the stage name for a
number of performing orcas at Sea World adventure parks. Wherever
there is a Sea World, the Shamu show
is always the most popular
attraction. When you train an orca,
you need lots of patience, lots of
love - and lots of fish! Bart the Bear Bart the Bear was a nine-foot Alaskan Kodiak bear. When he was a cub, he was raised by humans and trained to act in films. Whenever actors worked with him, they were always impressed. He worked with stars such as Brad Pitt and Steven Seagal. N'Kisi N'Kisi's name is usually mentioned whenever experts talk about language use by animals. It is claimed that this African grey parrot can use over 950 words meaningfully. He takes part in scientific studies on inter species communication. Which do you think is the most impressive? How can animals help us?

Helping Hands is an organization that trains monkeys to aid quadriplegics – people who are unable to use their arms or legs. These animals are able to perform easy but necessary tasks, such as turning electric switches on and off, fetching objects, and picking things up off the floor. They can even be taught to scratch an itch on someone’s nose. How are they trained? The young monkeys are placed with foster families who love them, take care of them, and teach them the basic skills. When the monkeys are adults, they go back to the organization for more advanced training. Once the monkeys are placed with a quadriplegic, they can be helpful for many years.

2. Man
These days, many nursing homes are discovering the powerful impact that animals, such as dogs, can have on their elderly residents. Owners bring in healthy dogs with good dispositions for weekly visits. Residents look forward to their arrival, often smiling and showing a true interest in the animal. They make more of an effort to walk or move their wheelchairs over to the dogs to pet them. This probably has a lot to do with the fact that dogs give everyone their attention, not caring about age, looks, or ability to speak. For some residents, it may spark fond memories of pets. The owners of the dogs also benefit from the experience. They see the happiness that volunteering their pets brings. Some important words Train: develop behavior by instruction and practice
Fetch: go or come after and bring back
Scratch: to rub as if to get rid of itching
Foster family: care though not related by blood or legal ties
Nursing homes: place where people are cared for
Dispositions: usual mood
Interest: curiosity about someone or something
Fond: having or displaying warmth or affection
Benefit: something that aids or promotes well-being
