One tangled Weta, flying his kite. Two spiky Tuatara, racing their bikes.
Three diving dolphins, cutting through the waves. Four cool Penguins, trying new skating moves.
Five musical tui, playing a beautiful tune. Six sandy Sealions, playing in the dunes.
Seven fishing kiwi, trying to catch some food. Eight excited Eels, floating in inner tubes.
Nine paddling Pukeko, in their waka having fun. Ten colourful Geckos, eating ice creams in the sun.
