Last Sunday, I made a visit to a zoo with my family. Actually, we made a plan to go to zoo a day before Sunday. Everyone agreed and eagerly started waiting for the Sunday especially children. They made many plans for the visit. On Saturday everyone went to bed early but my son couldn’t have a sound sleep1. He kept on2tossing around3 the bed because of more enthusiasm4for Sunday visit. On Sunday the cab5 came early in the morning. It was surprising that everybody was ready to move and we set out6. We reached the zoo by 10 o’clock.
It was two and half an hour journey. My father asked children what they would like to see first. All (in chorus) – the lions!Grandfather! Come along7 then father called excitedly8. The cages were at one corner of the enclosed area. My son said, Ah! The lions are not in cages. All children ran to see lions at the other side of their exercise ground. What a fine place they have got with sand and rocks, and a pool in the middle. We found a lion walking about9. What a fine mane10 he has got! And another lion was lying down near to the rock, having no mane. It was a lioness. Soon after sometime the lioness started rolling in the warm sand. My son shouted, “See, there is a tiger in the cage over there11.” Tigers were kept separately. Oh! What a beauty, my father uttered12. Another tiger was walking up and down a rock. It was feeding time and he was waiting impatiently for the food. I saw a keeper coming with the great pieces of meat. First time I heard the tigergrowling13. Everyone was frightened14. My father made everyone understand15that the tiger can’t get at them. So need not to be afraid. After walking the distance16we saw monkeys. My son started asking for some nuts17from his grandfather to feed monkeys. But my father denied18 him to feed anything from outside. As the keeper was coming to feed monkeys, he saw my son arguing his grandfather to feed monkeys. The keeper allowed him to feed some nuts andalarmed19him not to go near the cage, because monkeys sometimes play nasty20tricks. But my son couldn’t control himselfstaying away21from the cage and he went close to the cage. Oh father help, he shouted, “he has snatched22away my cap.” My father scolded him and said now you’ve lost it. Soon we moved to see parrots and macaw.
By now we were tired and felt ravenous23 too. We came to the other side of the zoo where some other families were also taking rest and having meal. We also sat and opened the lunch boxes we had packed in the morning. We chatted and enjoyed the lunch. Then we came back home. It was really a great day.
