I went to the LA Zoo with my nieces Jasmine and Jessica last week. They are 6 and 4 years old and it was a very interesting trip for them and we saw many children who came and visited the zoo. We saw different animals in the zoo and I explained for them:
This is an elephant. They are very big animals and have a long memory, and a very long nose called a trunk. They make trumpet sound Or This is the lion. It is the king of the jungle and goes ROARRR!
This is a monkey. They spend a lot of time up in trees and like to eat fruits. This one has a banana. And this is the giraffe. It has a very long neck to reach the tender leaves up high on a tree. They are very tall and very quiet animals and so on.

Certain zoos also promote the conservation of endangered species. To people of all ages, zoos are just plain fun.
Most zoos, depending on the location, house animals from all over the world. Each zoo needs to be in a place where local animals, as well as exotic, can survive and live comfortably. That’s one of the main reasons why people go to zoos. Visitors are able to view unique animals through glass, and see how they might act in the wild.
Many children like going to the zoo to see the animals and enjoy being able to walk around. What you might not realize is the other numerous benefits of going to the zoo. I know that when I go to the zoo I enjoy being able to see all the animals that are not common in my area and learn about them. I know my nieces enjoy being able to go to the zoo because it is
