Zoo Lovers Day
Monday, April 08, 2019
This is our assignment for the Aspire and Inspire sparkteam: April 8th is Zoo Lovers Day. Zoos have been around for thousands of years. A zoo was originally called a "menagerie". In some form, menageries have been around since ancient times. The earliest recording was around 1500 B.C.!! Do you like to visit zoos? Have you been to many? If so, what is your favorite zoo to visit?
I haven’t been to many zoos. The one I’ve been to the most is Zoo Atlanta. I used to live in Atlanta, and I went several times while I lived there.
The zoo was very nice, and it had many different animals you could see. They also had some shows. I specifically remember a bird show and an elephant show. There was also a petting zoo within the zoo, which was a fun interactive element. My favorite animals there were the giant pandas. They are on loan to the zoo from China. They even have a “panda cam” so you can watch the pandas in real time on the zoo website.
