Title: A Zoo Day

A Zoo Day
Today I am an observer at the zoo. An observer
is someone who learns new things by watching what
happens around them.
A zoo is a place where people can go to observe
or watch wild animals and their behaviors.
I am an observer today because many people work
together to make sure the animals are happy and
Biologists are scientists that study the animals
behavior. They know what animals like and
Zookeepers make sure the animals have a clean
place to live and plenty of food.
Veterinarians are animal doctors. They help to
keep the animals at the zoo healthy.
Today I learned that I am an omnivore. Omnivores
are animals that eat both meat and plants.
Fruits and vegetables are plants.
The zookeeper said that each animal has its own
diet. A diet is the food each animals eats. If
an animal eats food that is not in its diet the
animal could get sick.
I saw two black bears at the zoo. Bears are
omnivores just like you and I. They like to eat
cabbage and fish. They also like to eat berries
and honey.
These two zebras are eating grass. They also like
to eat bark and twigs. Zebras are herbivores
because they only eat plants.
This is a black panther. Panthers hunt for their
food. Animals that hunt for their food are
carnivores. Carnivores are animals that eat
only meat.
White tigers are also carnivores. This tigers
name is Jill. Jill is sleeping because she is
nocturnal. Nocturnal means the animal sleeps
during the day and hunts for food at night.
Zookeeper John takes good care of the animals at
the zoo. He even showed Tasha the elephant how to
do fun tricks.
Biologists are observers also. They know all
about animal habitats. Habitats are the natural
environment animals lived in before the moved to
the zoo.
Biologist also know a lot about animals. This
monkey is a mammal. Mammals are warm blooded
animals with hair.
A mammal such as a monkey has a habitat with a
lot of trees. Monkeys like to live and play in
Elephants are also mammals. They do not have the
same habitat as a monkey. Elephants need open
spaces so they can walk around.
Not all animals are mammals. This is a bird.
Birds have feathers and lay eggs.
Birds have different habitats. This bird likes
to live in trees. He uses the bark of the tree
to sharpen his beak.
This is a bald-eagle. The bald-eagle is an
endangered bird. Endangered means that there are
very few of this animal left in the world. Mr.
Joe shows many people what a bald-eagle looks
like and tells us that we should protect them.
Most birds are kept in cages so they do not fly
away. Cages are used to protect wild animals.
Wild animals are untamed. This means if they are
not in a cage they could hurt themselves or other
animals at the zoo. Reptiles like the alligator
live in cages also.
This alligators habitat has water and land.
Alligators are cold blooded so they use the sun
to warm their body.
A turtle is also a reptile. Reptiles have
scales and lay eggs.
A reptile also has dry and scaly skin.
I saw a couple of amphibians on my trip to the
zoo. Amphibians have smooth, moist, and
sometimes sticky skin.
Frogs and newts are amphibians. They lives part
of their life in water and part on land.
I found out that some animals at the zoo are not
harmful to other the animals. These animals get
to walk around the zoo freely.
Other animals are placed in cages so that we can
pet them. This is called a petting zoo.
I had so much fun being an observer today.
Zookeeper John was very nice. Maybe I can be a
zookeeper when I grow up.
