Woh! Did you see that?

The Nile is a beautiful river stretching to 4189 miles long. Think about this... what do you think you would see in or along the Nile? Any ideas? No? Well then let me tell you all about it. A common animal would most likely be a hippopotamus. Although they may look cute they didn't appeal to Egyptians. They were normally killed immediately because they wood squish a farmers crop. We couldn't have that now could we? Without those crops they would have gone H-U-N-G-R-Y!!!!! You may also have seen a waterbird. That makes perfect sense to me, a waterbird on the longest river in the world. But wait! There is one more animal that isn't the friendliest. A crocodile. Dun...dun...dun. You probably don't want to jump out of your boat and take a swim no matter how inviting the water looks, you never know what could be lurking just below the surface. Even if you can't get out of your boat you can still have a good time. Other sites to see could have been a group of happy people relaxing on their reed boats and having a picnic. One more thing that I had in mind was a cataract. A cataracts are large waterfalls that lined the Nile. Beautiful, isn't it?
