For instance, today’s cats (big and small) come from
one pair that went on board the Ark! This would be
the same with the original dog kind. God would not
have needed to put domesticated dogs, coyotes
or even wolves aboard the Ark, God only needed
to send one male and one female of the original
Also, the Ark was huge! The Ark could hold 340
semitrailer trucks’ worth of cargo. This would be a
line five kilometres (three miles) long!

Are humans in the same created kind as apes?
No, humans are a unique created kind which
never became broken into different species
because we are so closely related to each other—all
humans are descended from the first pair, Adam
and Eve. Apes and monkeys are part of several
other created kinds.

“That’s really amazing that God created animals
in many different types!”
Take a walk with your parents in your town or
neighbourhood and write down (or photograph)
all the animals (including birds) you see. Once
you are home, draw pictures of the animals and
place them in groups according to the kind you
think the animals belong to. Observe how many
groups you have; do you have lots of different
groups or only a few groups?
