My name is Thor and I am a big black raven. Do you like ravens? I am 15 years old and I’m one of the oldest ravens who live here. I have a big raven - family of 9 birds. My brother is older than me, he is 18. And the youngest raven is 1 year old, it’s my son. Well, I like the Tower very much, because I feel comfortable here. A special man feeds us every day. I can’t fly away from the Tower, because my wings are cut, but I don’t want to do it. My father told me a legend to explain why the Londoners take care of the ravens. They think, that the Tower of London and the Great Britain will be until the ravens live in the Tower. If we fly away, then the Tower will fall. Do you think it’s true? I don’t. But I like to live here, so it’s OK if they think that the legend is true. Did you see these funny men in red clothes? They are the Beefeaters. Nobody knows why they got this name, but it’s funny too. They are the guards of the Tower of London. Oh, a man brought my dinner. I have to go! Bye, Thor Comprehension. True or False .
