The males are always larger than the females. They are massive creatures. Elephants have a trunk, two tusks, two eyes, two ears and two lumps on their head. They are known to be clever animals. When an elephant is hot, they fan themselves by flapping their ears back and forth. When an elephant herd wants to move they use their ears as a guide. Their hearing range is very large.

AntsAnts are small insect. The body of an ant is clearly divided into three sections; the head, the thorax, and the gaster. (The narrow waist is actually within the abdomen, so the part of the abdomen behind the waist is called the gaster.) The waist can be made up of one or two small segments, depending on the species.
Ants are social insects living in colonies comprised of one or a few queens, and many workers. The queen generally stays deep and safe within a nest. Most ants that you see are workers and these are all females. Depending on species, workers may be similar in size, or come in a range of sizes, Ants tend to corne in dark or earth-tones.

Making an OmeletThis is the way an omelet should be made. It is important that the frying-pan should be proportionate to the number of eggs; in other word, to the size of the omelet. The fryingpan must be made of iron not of aluminum, tin or enamel. And here I fell I must stress a point, essential to what might be called the background of omelet-making, namely that the frying-pan must never be washed with water but rubbed, when hot, with salt and tissue paper, as this is the only way to prevent sticking.
For three papers, we take six eggs, break them into a bowl, season them with salt and freshly ground pepper, and add a good teaspoonful of water. We beat this lightly with a fork or the wire-broom, not the whisk, until large bubbles from on the top. This takes half a minute; it is fatal to beat too long. Meanwhile, our fryingpan is getting heat, not too hot, and we drop in an ounce and a half of butter and best lard, over quick flame for a minute or two, until it gives no more froth and has turned light golden. We give our egg-mixture another stir and pour it into the fat, letting it spread evenly over the frying-pan.
All this is a swift business, and we may well feel a few extra hearts-beats and a little breathlessness at that moment. The flame is now turned down a little. With a fork or palette-knife (a fork seems to work particularly well) we loosen the edges of the omelet all round and, once or twice, in the middle, letting the liquid flow into the empty spaces, taking care always to move towards the middle.
This takes about two minutes. Then, keeping as calm as we possibly can, we fold it. This is easiest if we fold over and pin down with two or three fork-pricks about an inch and-a-half of the omelet along one side. Then it is quite easy to roll it into shape. Our omelet should be golden brown outside and wet inside: because, as is the classical French term. It is then slid on to a hot plate and its surface made shiny with a little butter. This last touch makes all the difference.
18. What is important about the frying-pan?
a. It should be the same size as the eggs.
b. It should never be a small one.
c. It should never be too small to hold the eggs.
d. It should never be a very flat one.
e. It should be a big one.
