Context
Help

The nature show on TV is following a fierce or very unfriendly lion as it fights hyenas to keep them away from its food. Its fierce or violent roar scares all of the animals in the area. The camera is showing a close-up of the fierce or angry look on the lion’s face. That look reminds me of the fierce or wild look in your eyes just after I said you had to go to bed and right before you threw a fit!

Quiz: What does a fierce animal do?

  • Runs off into the woods because it’s scared.
  • Has plenty to eat because it can find enough food.
  • Bares its teeth, growls, and attacks.
