Once there lived a crow who did not like his feathers. She always admired the colorful feathers of the peacock and wanted to be one among them.

“You all look so dull and plain. Look how beautiful the peacocks are. I so wish I were a peacock” she would say to her fellow crows.

One day, the crow saw many peacock feathers on the ground. Seeing those peacock feathers an idea struck. She gathered them and stuck them into her wings and tail and a few up from her head to look exactly like the peacock. 

“Now I am as gorgeous as a peacock,” she said to herself. And so, she went to join the flock of peacocks but was mocked and thrown out. The peacocks clearly understood that she was not one among them. “Putting on peacock feathers will not make you a peacock,” they said to her. Sad and humiliated, she returned back to her fellow crows. But, none of her fellow crows wanted her company after all her insults. To add insult to the injury, they noticed peacock feathers hanging out from her wings and tail and mocked her. Then an old wise crow came and told him “we should accept the way we are. Don’t try to copy others blindly. I hope you have learned your lesson”.

Answer the questions given below it.

Dolphins are highly intelligent aquatic mammals. Because of their ability to learn and perform complex tasks in captivity, their continuous communications with one another, and their ability, through training, to approximate the sounds of a few human words, some investigators have suggested that the animals might be capable of learning a truc language and communicating with humans. Most authorities, however, agree that although the dolphin’s problem – 4 solving abilities put the animal on an intelligence level close to that of primates, no evidence exists that dolphin communications approach the complexity of a true language. There are about 60 species of dolphins. They use sound (echolocation) to navigate, to find prey and for communication. The species most frequently seen is the bottle-nose dolphin, a popular performer in sea aquariums, found in all warm seas. It is mainly grey in colour and grows up to a maximum of 4.2 meters. It lives in a group of up to 15 individuals. There is extensive communications and cooperation between individuals, they can produce a range of clicks of various frequencies, which they use for echolocation. The common dolphin, which inspired many Mediterranean fold legends, is found in all temperate and tropical’s seas. It has up to 100 teeth in its jaws, which make the 15 cm ‘beak’ protrude forward from the rounded head. The corners of its mouth are permanently upturned giving the appearance of a smile, though dolphins cannot actually smile, Dolphins feed on fish and squid. Some cies of dolphins can swim up to kmph. Helped by social streamlining modifications of the skin. All dolphins power themselves by beating the tail

up down and use flippers to steer and stabilize. River dolphins inhabit river estuaries  in Asia and South America. They have very long slender beak and whiskers and limited eyesight. They love to swim in fresh water.
