Last Sunday, I went to the zoo along with my uncle. We bought the tickets at the main gate and went inside. The first thing which pleased me most was the purity and freshness of air. The sight of beautiful green trees and plants was also quite exhilarating.
As we went a little further, we saw a big lake like tank. I was greatly amused when I saw ducks, swans and other water birds swimming in water. Some of them were sitting on the banks and preening their feathers. We proceeded further, I saw a huge crowd of children and adults at some distance. As I saw carefully, I noticed a large number of monkeys and apes jumping from branch to branch.
They were gibbering and staring at the onlookers. Some children were throwing peanuts and parched grams towards the monkeys. The latter picked up the grams and peanuts and ate them leisurely. My uncle had also brought those things with him. He gave me a handful of them. I also threw them towards the monkeys.

As the naughty animals picked them up I felt very happy. I also felt amused when I found some monkeys imitating the gestures of the grown-ups. We moved forward. In a cage we saw a lion. It was roaring. Some children were teasing it. It was very bad on their part.
Moreover, a worker in the zoo told us that it was dangerous to poke ones finger or hand inside a lion’s cage. We also saw many other animals such as wolves, bears, hyenas, deer, foxes, jackals and sparrows of many colors. The birds that pleased me most were Ostrich, Penguin and Kiwi.
In the end, I had an Elephant ride. It was the grand finale to our visit which I’ll never forget.

A Zoo is a place where animals are kept and maintained for a look by the common man. Here in a Zoo, birds of different varieties are also maintained. The purpose of a zoo is to show us, common people like varieties of animals and birds that exist the world over people who may never be able to see these creatures get a simple chance to see them.
A visit to the zoo, increases general knowledge, and at the same time with an achievement, we also get entertainment. A zoo is a place which children specially like to visit.
Last Sunday I visited Delhi zoo to see the animals and birds kept in this place. It is one of the largest Zoos in the country. It covers a vast area of about 35 acres. It is situated near the old fort (purana qila) and is a place of great attraction. It is always crowded by thousands of people and children every day. It is a beautiful and natural place consisting of many kinds of trees.

Apart from plants, bushes and grassy grounds in the Zoo, there are many animals and birds, which come from many countries of the world. There we saw beautiful birds with multi-coloured feathers. There were pelicans, Siberian crane, peacocks, peahens, sparrows, Nightingales, Kingfishers, etc.
We saw the cranes, storks, ducks and swans swimming in the pond. Some birds were singing, chirping and whistling. We were very amused to see various kinds of monkeys, gorillas and baboons. I was very delighted to see my favourite animals, which included tigers, lions, leopard and cheetah. There were also many elephants, giraffe, rhinoceros, hippopotamus and crocodiles in the zoo.
The other attraction of the zoo was stags, deers, hares, antelopes and rabbits. The most entertaining were the playful chimpanzees. They were showing various tricks and we all enjoyed their acrobatics. It was a thrill to see lovely golden fishes swimming in the water.
We visited the entire huge expanse of the area covered by the zoo, and saw all the cages of animals and birds but the best area I liked was the natural habitat created for the lion. He has a huge den like home made in a deep cave in a huge rock. Near his home, there is an open space for the lion to move about freely. Near his home there is also a huge pond filled with water for the lion to drink water.
The atmosphere created is just like the jungle we visualise to be where the lion is supposed to live. This area gives us a very clear picture of what a jungle is, and we also find it very easy to understand the living condition of a lion in the jungle. It teaches more than any book could, as, we see the lion itself and the surroundings as they are.
The other area of the zoo that I liked was the setting made for the monkeys of different kinds and sizes and colours. Some are black and skin colour while others are just plain skin colour. I do wonder why most of the children visiting the zoo were crowding at this area. It appeared as though the monkey was a high attraction for all of them. I also liked the area very much, and we had a lot of fun in this place. It was such fun seeing all size monkeys jumping from tree to tree with such ease. Huge and very fat monkeys were seen jumping with as much ease as the small and thin ones. How they ate the mustard and fruits thrown to them by the children was the most interesting sight to watch.
After seeing the zoo, we felt tired and hungry. We sat under a tree and ate our tiffin. After sometimes, we returned to our school. We thanked our teacher for such an enjoyable trip we leant many things about the animals. I saw some animals for the first time, which I had seen earlier only in pictures.
My visit to the zoo was great fun and with it. It was also very educative and informative. A zoo helps us to learn so much without visiting the natural habitats of animals and birds.

My visit to a zoo was a part of our family vacation in Guwahati, Assam. We reached there the day before we went to the zoo. We stayed in a hotel there and the next morning we started our sightseeing. The zoo we visited was the largest of its kind in the area and it was named as Assam State Zoo.
It was established long ago in 1958 and since then it has been expanded and modified with time. It covers a pretty large area of 432 acres approximately. Assam state zoo is located within the Hengrabari Reserved Forest in Guwahati.
It has a clean and beautiful campus and is a home for many indigenous and exotic species of animals. Although there are exotic species brought from different parts of the world, but it focuses more on indigenous species.
We could see many animals and birds there. We paid for the entry fee at the counter and it coasted ten rupees for each person and twenty rupees for each camera. We were directed not to feed the animals anything. They mentioned us that in an attempt to do that, the fierce animals such as the bear or tiger have created some disaster before by tearing the person into pieces before anybody could rescue. Also, we were warned not to cross the warning grills.
Then we proceeded towards the zoo. I saw a few animals live for the very first time. The tiger, black bear, rhino, etc. were so much bigger than I actually thought they would be. The bear was sleeping and the tigers were simply sitting. It seemed they were fed very nicely and they were in a mood to rest.
Then we saw the very rare hillock gibbon, whose main habitat lies in my hometown Tinsukia itself. Though It was in the zoo, where I actually saw it.

A big python was caged too and I was really afraid when I saw such a big snake. I have seen in movies and discovery channel how they coil around animals to crush them and then they swallow. So those pictures were coming alive in the mind. I quickly clicked a photo and disappeared from that scene as I am very creepy about snakes.
Then, I saw the peacock. I wanted to take a picture when the male peacock will spread its wing. But it did not do that.
We roamed around the zoo for one and half hour or so and took pictures like that. And then finally it was time to go. Coming back from the zoo though I was feeling good, but I felt another thought arising in my mind that those animals can’t speak. Though we thought they were happy but they are in captivity and most wild animals love to hunt themselves. Well, as long as they are kept well zoo culture is not that bad. Thing is that, a replica of the wild habitat must be made. Animals in concrete is same as humans in Jungle. Both equally uncomfortable.
We went for lunch at a nearby hotel and then went to other places in Guwahati.

Last Sunday, 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..

A visit to a zoo is one of the most enthralling and exciting things. It is an interesting way to let the children see animals, which they cannot see otherwise. A visit to a zoo is an entertaining activity not just for children but also for adults as it increases their knowledge and makes them wonder at the marvellous of nature. During our educational tour to Delhi, last month, we were also taken to the zoo as it is near the old fort. The zoo is one of the largest in the country spread in a vast area of 35 acres, approximately. The zoo is thickly vegetated with a large variety of birds and animals. We firstly visited the Birds’ section, which was a colourful treat to our eyes. This section was echoing with the chirping of the birds all over. The multi-coloured birds were twittering all over, we saw the graceful pelicans, lovely kingfishers and the cranes, the dignified swans, and peacocks, peahens, sparrows of different kinds, nightingales, Siberian cranes, storks, ducks, the wild parrot and a wide variety of mountain birds. Next we went to the Animals’ section. It was amazing to see the tigers, lions, cheetahs, leopards, bears, rhinoceros, hippopotamuses, elephants, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, stages, horses, and rabbits etc. the Deer, Antelopes and Stages were very active and alert. The Hares and Rabbits were naughty while the tall giraffes and twin-coloured zebras were busy eating or grazing. The rhinoceros and Hippopotamuses seemed to be very lazy. But they were interesting to look at with their huge and bulky bodies. We were hypnotized by their massive size. The Tiger, Leopards, Cheetahs, Bears were huge and fearful to look at. The sharp teeth and claws were very frightening. The king of the jungle was awesome in his den. His loud roar echoed and reverberated up to the skies. We all could watch him for hours together. The best attraction, however, were the Monkeys, Chimpanzees, Baboons, Gorillas etc. They were so amusing with their pranks and swinging tails.

A Visit to the Zoo Last Sunday it was cloudy. I, along with my friends visited the zoo . As we reached the main gate of the zoo . we saw a huge crowd. Some were buying, entrance tickets, some were gossiping and chatting while others were relaxing under the shady trees. We entered the zoological gardens and ca me across a beautiful lake, where some water-birds, like ducks, were swimming. Seeing the white ducks on the smooth surface of water is a charming sight. As we moved further, we came to the enclosure where birds were kept. They ranged from sparrows, eagles and parrots to pigeons of various colours. The birds were chirping. It was enchanting music. We enjoyed it very much. In the next enclosure were kept lions and leopards, tigers and tigresses, whose roars were deafening. As we approached the net, a lion rushed towards us and we were terrified. Their fierce looks were frightening. After seeing this, we came across a garden having stags, very smart and beautiful. In one of the corners, monkeys were jumping. Their tricks and pranks were very pleasing. Some people threw peanuts to them and they immediately jumped down the trees to eat them. Many children were making faces at them. Our next halt was at an aquarium in which we were most interested. A large number of fishes were kept there. There were fish of many species and colours. To see them fidgeting in water was really a delightful spectacle. There were many.

for the winter vacations. One day I went to Vandalur zoo with my friends. The entry was by tickets. We went up several steps to purchase the tickets. Then we entered the zoo . We walked up and down. A deep canal ran parallel to the footpath. Beyond the canal there were small trees. The cages of the birds were hanging down the branches of the trees. Their multi-coloured feathers gleamed into sunlight. Next we saw a small water pond with many kinds of birds swimming in it. It was interesting to see new birds in an enclosure. They twittered, chirped and whistled. They presented nature’s voice. It was pleasing indeed to hear them. We saw many birds there - sparrows, nightingales and owls of different colours set in the closed cage. The owls sat with closed eyes lost in thoughts. We bade a silent farewell to those philosophers among birds and walked on. We visited the tigers, lions and bears shut in cages. We saw some hippos and also a rhino. We heared the loud roar of a lion. One tiger was in a fit of anger. The tiger was strong and handsome. I was reminded of Blake’s lines. “What immortal hand or eye dare frame the fearful symmetry?” Then we enjoyed a boat cruise. I enjoyed it most. We also saw many other fauna like crocodiles, snakes, frogs, fish ad a hundred other creatures. They all felt at home in the zoo . Last of all we saw different kinds of monkeys. We passed many happy hours in the.

Zoos . Haven or Prison? Zoos are popular, well-known, and common attractions for many people. They can spend some time with their family, see animals closely and get some information about them. Despite their popularity, zoos are controversial. Some people believe animals should be kept at the zoo because of the many benefits humans provide like protecting rare species from extinction. Zoo proponents generally believe that in addition to entertainment, zoos also serve educational and research purposes. These reasons are enough justification to raise animals in captivity, in artificial habitats. The fact is zoo opponents believe these institutions change the animals’ habitats and can cause mental and physical damage to the animals. Also zoos provide limited research and educational purposes, and there is no reason for mankind to capture animals and make them live in the conditions that they have to endure at zoos . Some people believe animals should be kept at zoos to protect rare species from extinction and hunting. Zoos provide a safe place for animals because they provide food and health care for animals, and also allow them to reproduce and rear their young in a safe environment. Some zoos have mission to preserve and protect endanger species like cheetahs and black footed penguins. Some.

2012. Dear Avenash, How are you? I hope you are fine. I am fine at the moment. I am writing this letter to tell you about our class outing to the zoo since you couldn’t make it because of your doctor’s appointment. I hope you’re not terribly sick. Maybe this story will brighten up your day…. Well here goes nothing. It all started on Monday 15th. May 23, 2012. All the Std. 3 classes left at 8:OO on the bus. We were going with two of our teachers, Coach Manley Bunz and Ms. B. Haven. Ms. B. Haven, our favourite teacher because she let us do any we want and she didn’t have much rules and Coach Manley Bunz was the strictest teacher in school, you know, the teacher who carries around a telescope to see what we are doing. Before the bus was ready to leave Coach Manley Bunz spoke about some ground rules…. Yeah I didn’t really bother to listen because I’m sure you remember the big long lectures he has that NOBODY ON THIS PLANET would want to hear. The journey took FOREVER but there were some fun things about having to wait long to get there. First of all, the bus had computers and televisions so we could watch television and play on the computers. Along the way we saw places like the San Fernando Hill, U.S. Embassy, Queens Park Savannah, N.A.P.A. and then finally…. We arrived at the Emperor Valley Zoo . Yay! Now all the excitement began. So first we bought our tickets and went inside. Our first stop was the snakes.

When Freedom Isn’t Free: Considering the Costs of Liberation in Dürrenmatt’s The Visit The life of Claire Zachanassian of Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s The Visit is an endless pursuit of liberation – she offers the people of her depression-stricken hometown one million dollars in return for the death of her high school sweetheart, protagonist Alfred Ill. Claire believes that Ill’s death will justify the wrong she was done so many years ago when Ill testified against her in court and claimed to not be the father of her child, tacitly sentencing her to many a year spent in brothels. No matter how Claire tries to liberate herself from the past, however, the means she uses in order to liberate herself end up hurting her as well as those who initially suppressed her. Because society has for so long imprisoned Claire, Claire must ultimately imprison society in order to liberate herself. The Guellen townspeople are initially appalled at Claire’s offer, the mayor proudly telling Claire that “in the name of all citizens of Guellen, I reject your offer; and I reject it in the name of humanity. We would rather have poverty than blood on our hands”(Dürrenmatt 39). Claire, however, has a different plan in mind. When Guellen’s doctor and schoolmaster try to talk Claire out of demanding the bloody price of Ill’s death in return for her one million dollar offer, Claire politely but firmly assures them that “the world turned me into a whore, I shall turn the.
