Listen to the audio and say what is a good family animal

Macaw parrot Chinchilla Rat

Q A

Q: We’re looking for a family pet but not a dog or a cat. We’d like something more interesting but also safe. Which is better — a Macaw parrot or a chinchilla?
A: These pets are more interesting than dogs or cats, and they’re safe, but are they right for your family?
Macaw parrots are beautiful and friendly, and they don’t need to go for walks every day! But they need a big cage, the biggest cage you can buy — and they’re expensive. Don’t forget, they live longer than dogs or cats. Chinchillas are more energetic than parrots and they’re cheaper. But they’re not the best pets for young children because they play at night and sleep in the day. What about a rat? They’re not the most beautiful pets in the world but they are the most intelligent. They’re also clean, friendly and they like playing with toys!

Listen to the audio again and write parrots, chinchillas or rats
