How can someone fish without the presence of water? If the principle of fishing is to use bait to catch fish, then there are many ground animals who accomplish the same strategy on their terrestrial preys.


Fishing Termites!


Using sticks as tools,

Poking into ground for food,

Chimps can fish termites!


Tail Baits Food!


Tail acts as worm bait,

Body hidden beneath sands,

Sidewinder hunts prey!

    Beautiful. Just with a few lines you are able to teach about wild life. People who write on wild animals can use it in their work.

    Thank you friends.

    Dear Shettychamp: Please do not copy paste the same comment. It is highly unprofessional.
