                                              OUCH that must hurt.  Here are some facts.

                                Rata trees, along with the pohutukawa, are one of the best known native trees in 
                                New Zealand.
                                Rata trees have glossy dark green leaves and trunks that are often gnarled and twisted.
                                Since brushtail possum were introduced from Australia in the nineteenth century.
The Rata Tree is in trouble. They are In trouble because..Possums eat a wide range of plants, but show strong preferences for some species like the rata and are also known to prey on native wildlife such as kakapo chicks. Studies have shown that they will often browse one or a few trees, while ignoring others of the same species nearby.

Personal recount

One day my sister was walking me to school. She was being mean and tripped me up. With a great fall I tumbled to the the ground.
My face flooded with blood and it dripped all over the ground. We were close to my mums friends house. They cleared my blood and gave me a ride home so I can rest my head. It was really sore because when I tripped over.  I  got an ice pack on my head and I had to put salt water in my mouth. And I even had it to wash around in my mouth. I have a scar that has been there since I had fallen over last year.
