el rinoceronte

¡Gracias! As per my post on yesterday's list, here's my attempt at using some of this vocabulary in sentences:

Hay mucha fauna en las montañas acerca de mi casa, pero muchos animales y muchas plantas aquí ponen en peligro porque gente están dañando el medio abiente. No tenemos rinocerontes o chipancés, pero hay muchos otros animales.

Thank you for doing this! Great idea for other Spanish learners like me to find new words in an organized fashion. You rock, M-taz!

Thanks, but I have to say I liked yesterday's lesson better. All the vocabulary was used in the example. Today it felt like random words on a subject, not a lesson.
