|A Visit to the Zoo
by Stormy on August 25, 2001
When I moved to the city, I got to live in the house, but it turns out that most animals who come to the city from the wilderness end up living in a zoo.
Today was a big party at the zoo. Amigo, the baby elephant, turned three years old and there was a huge birthday party for him. It turns out that elephants are pretty popular around here! Elephants belong to a group of animals known as pachyderms, so with all the festivities, I spent a lot of time in the pachyderm section of the zoo. Animals are fun. They're very different from people. Some are lazy, some are curious, some are just mean. I wanted to squeeze into a few cages to interview some of the animals, but as it turned out, there's a rule about outside animals going in the cages! I guess the zookeepers didn't want me to tell any of their animals about living in a house instead.
