I can be big or small.
I love to play and chase a ball.
When you pat me I wag my tail.
I bark when the man comes with the mail.
My famous feature is my nose.
It's long and thin, like a garden hose.
A peanut is my favorite treat.
My ears can grow up to four feet!
I am big and very hairy,
The "teddy" version of me keeps the night from being scary,
I hibernate the winter through,
Watching my cubs play cheers you up when you are blue.
I swim under the water every day.
At Sea World you can watch me play.
I am smooth and my skin is gray.
My voice is squeaky, some would say.
I am born by hatching from an egg,
"Polly Want a Cracker," I often beg,
My feathers are colorful and bright,
Want me as a pet? You just might!
I live in the desert, and it is hot there!
My body is covered in brown, shaggy hair.
There are humps on my back, sometimes one or two.
I'm not just for riding, but for carrying things, too!
I run around my little wheel.
Usually at night is when this need I feel,
I am small and furry and sleep a lot,
In a pet store, I am often bought.
I don't take baths, I lick my fur.
If you scratch my ears, I start to purr.
I love to scratch my favorite post.
My owners are who I love most!
I am a common sight in nearly every zoo,
I can even do some of the things that humans do.
I come in many colors and am always rather furry,
I can swing through the trees in a mighty big hurry.
I swim all day in the deep blue sea,
Most people are afraid of me.
I have one fin upon my back,
When people see it, they yell, "_________ attack!"
