my dad decided to take me and my friends for a
visit to the Alipore Zoological Garden. The
thought of being able to see all those different
kinds of birds and animals LIVE made us excited.
The Alipore Zoo is crowded with hundreds of people everyday who come to watch the various animals and birds that are brought in from different countries. In one part of the zoo, there were big cages consisting of birds like the ostrich, parrots, peacocks, and many others. The thing which scared me the most was the big, fat python, which twirled itself around the branches of a tree. Among all the animals, the monkeys were the funniest. They made all kinds of faces and noises and when I handed over a banana, they readily came forward and took it. It was great fun watching them jump from one tree to another, within the cage, with such ease. The other attractions of the zoo were the deer, elephants, giraffes and the huge crocodiles lying peacefully on the banks of the pond. At last, we headed towards the den of the king of the jungle, the lion. There were strict guards around the enclosure and though we were allowed to take photographs, we could not go near it. I was quite happy to see the natural habitat created for them, and that they had much open space to roam around freely.
I really enjoyed my visit to the zoo as it had been a very good experience. The zoo is not only a place for fun, but it is also educative as it teaches us many things about birds and animals, which we mostly see in pictures or on television..
