Ní chónaíonn.

1) Tá sé beo: It's alive
2) Níl sé in ann eitilt: It can't fly
3) Tá ceithre chos aige: It has four legs
4) Ní choimeádtear mar pheata é. It isn't kept as a pet
5) Ní bhíonn sé ina chónaí i ndufair. It doesn't live in a jungle.
6) Sílim go bhfuil sé le fáil go nádúrtha in Éirinn. I think it's found naturally in Ireland.
7) Ní mactire é (rua nó dath eile): It's not a wolf, red or otherwise
8) Ní gheimhríonn sé: It doesn't hibernate.
9) Ní chónaíonn sé ar fheirm. It doesn't live on a farm.
