How Snakes Were Made     By Liem

In the dreamtime, Indigenous Aboriginals were hunting for food, they caught some animals like: kangaroos, dingoes,a platypus and eels. They tied the animals in string and carried the animal’s back to their camp. They firstly ate the animals tails and then ate the rest of the animal’s body. Suddenly they became longer and their tongues became long, they were getting scales. They lost their legs and arms, they didn’t have hair anymore and they were very long. They could make a sound like “SSSsss” and they were surprised. They put their tongues out and they could sense everything.

And that is how Snakes were made.

“Smell this. It smells lovely!” Yukiyikiwa lied while smiling. Zuyiko took the leaf without hesitating. He quickly smelled it. His eyes looked they were giving up, so Zuyiko climbed up a tree and slept. For days and days he would sleep in the same tree. He suddenly started to grow  grey fur and claws. He even started to get smaller!

“This is fascinating! Oh he must stay like this forever! In fact, we’ll change his name too!” Yukiyikiwa said with excitement. A few days later, Yukiyikiwa finally made a decision for Zuyiko’s name; koala.

Everyone agreed. Soon after, Zuyiko, the koala found another koala. It was a girl. They both talked to each other and had a baby. Then there became more koalas. And this is how koalas were made.

One day, a person was holding a torch and walking to find a cave to have some shelter, when all of a sudden, the person accidently dropped the torch. The person ran away because of the trees were burning. He ran as far as he could away from the trees.

All the trees turned into ash, when all of a sudden, all the ash burst away from the trees. It went on the koalas. The koalas had been brown but now the koalas were grey. Some other koalas did not join in so they stayed brown.
