My Visit to a Zoo
A visit to an important place is always helpful to gain knowledge. Similarly, a visit to a zoo is also helpful for enriching our knowledge of zoology. A Zoo is a place where animals are kept and maintained for a look by the common man. A zoo is related to zoological science or animal world. Thus we can learn a lot about various animals, their nature, and their detailed history. 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. We can learn about how various animals, birds live, are born and survive. Once I had an opportunity to visit a zoo.
A visit to the zoo increases general knowledge, and at the same time with an achievement, we also get entertainment. Last Friday I went to pay a visit to the National Zoo at Mirpur. At the entrance, I collected a ticket for taka 20/4- standing in a big queue. The majestic gate and a big signboard attracted my attention. I saw many men crowding at the gate. The covering area of the zoo is quite extensive. But still, it seems inadequate to me. A zoo is a place which children especially like to visit.
At first, I went to the shed where the monkeys live. They were jumping here and there with chattering. I was amused to see their jumping and chattering. I offered them some nuts and they seemed very happy to get them.
Then I was attracted to the place where the snakes are kept. Two pythons seemed to be asleep. The sight of the snakes made my blood creep. Afterward, I rushed to the place where I saw some porcupines. Then I hurried to see deer, giraffes, camels, donkeys, zebras, etc. They seemed to be very gentle and innocent animals. I went to the cages of tigers, lions, and bears. They greeted me and other visitors with loud growls. As they are wild and are ferocious, their appearances made me afraid.
I felt rather happy when I visited the birds. They were of various colors and shapes. I crocodiles kept in a small pond. They seemed to be very weak. I felt pity for them.
At a short distance, I found the elephants. Some boys were mounting on the elephants. animals were carrying the boys silently on their backs. I also saw gorillas and chimpanzees. Their performances and activities made me laugh.
I gathered some experiences about the animal world from this visit. I had little knowledge about the nature and behavior of the birds and beasts before. But this visit helped me to have first-hand knowledge about the nature and behavior of the birds.
My visit to the zoo was great fun and with it. It was also very educational and informative. The sight of the birds and beasts gave me great joy. A zoo helps us to learn so much without visiting the natural habitats of animals and birds. Though I felt tired after a visit of long four or five hours, I left the place with a joyful mind and immense experience.
