Teks berikut ini adalah contoh teks explanation tentang binatang, Sea-Horse (Kuda Laut).
Sea-horses are sea creatures with heads. It seems like horses. They are actually fish. They build their homes in warm, shallow water, where they live amongst sea plants.
A sea-horse has a skeleton, gills, and fins like a fish. But, unlike other fish, however, it doesn't have scales. Its body is covered with bony plates of 'armour'. This heavy 'armour' makes it hard for the sea-horse to swim. It spends much of its time having a rest among the sea plants. It uses its prehensile tail to anchor itself to plants. When microscopic sea animals swim by, the sea horse quickly sucks them up with its long snout.
The eyes of sea-horse do not look straight ahead like human. A sea-horse can look left with one eye and look right with the other. This means it can look out for enemies with one eye and search for food with other.
Sea-horse are clever at camouflaging themselves. They can change their colors easily. They can be brown, red, yellow, black, grey, or white. They also change their color in the blink of an eye. This makes it hard for enemies like birds and crabs to see them.
