      I like both!

      I work with land animals quite a lot, so I am more familiar with them. I worked with rhinos in Africa, which was amazing. They are huge animals, but surprisingly gentle. I was lucky enough to watch a mother and baby, and they ran away very gracefully considering they weigh about 1000kg!

      I have never really worked with snow animals, although I’d like to. My favourite snow animals are penguins, and I’d really like to see one in the wild one day. I was really impressed when I saw a video of Emperor penguins, because they walk about 100km over ice and snow every year to have babies, and if you’ve ever seen a penguin walk, you know that’s not easy…
