Day Out at the London Zoo

on May 5, 2012

In almost every country we visit, we come to see the zoo. London Zoo is the world’s oldest scientific zoo. It opened in 1828. At the zoo they try to recreate the animal’s natural environment. My favourite were the Penguin Beach, Squirrel Monkey enclosure, the Butterfly paradise, and the petting zoo. You can really see the animals up close; the squirrel monkeys roam around the enclosure with the visitors, they were so cute. The butterflies fly around you too at the Butterfly paradise.We listened to the zookeepers explain what the animals were, their original habitat, and how they are looked after.
