About Us
Hiena and Fumaca, the Pets of the Day
Name: Hiena (Hyena)/Fumaca (Smoke)
Age: Twelve/Four years old
Gender: Female/Male
Kind: Dog/Brown-Cloak Hawk
Home: Sao Jose dos Campos, Sao Paulo, Brazil
   They teach us a lesson of harmony! Hiena adopted Fumaca (it came to our home in the egg). Every time my mother (she is a veterinarian) was giving food, medicine or anything to Fumaca, Hiena was at her side watching. The hawk grew up seeing Hiena. Now, the hawk sees humans and dogs like family members. No one can try to attack Fumaca when his "mom" is at his side! The people of the world need to learn from this example of true love! And now I ask: "Who are the rational ones, men or animals?"
