the rabbit hole..
- Rabbits are always being chased after, they also don’t
attack any other animals. Rabbits are prey,
- Rabbits live in underground burrows (rabbit holes)
and they live in large groups.
- Burrows are areas of slightly raised land
which the rabbit burrows into and carves
out a home in the dirt.
- Rabbits have very powerful hind legs which
assist them with digging homes as well
as quick escapes from predators.
Would the fall NEVER come to an end!
`I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time?'
she said aloud. `I must be getting somewhere near
the centre of the earth. Let me see: that would be
four thousand miles down, I think—'
(for, you see, Alice had learnt several things of this
sort in her lessons in the schoolroom, and though this
was not a VERY good opportunity for showing
off her knowledge, as there was no one to listen to her,
still it was good practice to say it over)
`--yes, that's about the right distance--but then I
wonder what Latitude or Longitude I've got to?'
(Alice had no idea what Latitude was, or Longitude either,
but thought they were nice grand words to say.)
Presently she began again.
`I wonder if I shall fall right THROUGH the earth!
How funny it'll seem to come out among the people
that walk with their heads downward!
The Antipathies, I think--' (she was rather glad there
WAS no one listening, this time, as it didn't sound
at all the right word) `--but I shall have to ask them what
the name of the country is, you know.
Please, Ma'am, is this New Zealand or Australia?'
(and she tried to curtsey as she spoke--fancy CURTSEYING
as you're falling through the air! Do you think you could
manage it?) `And what an ignorant little girl she'll
think me for asking! No, it'll never do to ask:
perhaps I shall see it written up somewhere.'
