Remains of wolf-like ancient otter discovered in China
Hong Kong (CNN)The modern day otter might not be the most fearsome creature to stalk the Earth, but the discovery of a species that lived 6.6 million years ago in southwestern China suggests its ancestor cut a much more intimidating figure.
I chose this article because I am drawn by the title. Even though my interests are not really knowing about fossils, this article makes me want to read it. Since I like animals, and it is weird to know that there were wolf-like otters, since otters are known to be cute and small.
The lead is already interesting to start with. It makes the readers, especially me, want to read about it. The use of 5W+1H is already good, and the structure too. Making it from the most general thing to the more specific object, which is the subject itself (a wolf-like otter). The use of the quotations are well used. It is to show the opinion of a certain person. Also, even though there are some unfamiliar words, the writer still explains what it means, which makes it a more understandable article for the people reading it. It is an interesting and fascinating article to read.
