A Visit to A Zoo
A Visit to A Zoo :
Our school broke up 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 zoo. It was a pleasing experience for all of us.

Essay topic: do you agree that the zoo has no useful purpose? why or why not?
Zoo serves as an attraction to people.Most of us enjoy watching different kinds of animals in the zoo.We are so amazed in looking and observing them.However, we should consider if the zoo is beneficial to people or harmful to animals.
Keeping the animals in the zoo has its benefits to people. Most of us like viewing animals because it entertain and amuse us.We appreciate more watching animals in variety compared as to looking at them in television. We can take a closer look at them. We are so curious how they behave, move and make sounds to communicate to their own species and to people as well.
In addition, zoo is utilized for eduactional purposes such as field trips. Children are usually involved in this kind of activity to learn more about the animal kingdom.They will have the opportunity to see a variety of animals in different shapes and forms. Children will know their role in the environment.
Another use of the zoo is to keep wild animals from harming and killing people.Groups of animals can be seen in the forest and wandering in woods which can be very dangerous for people to come close to them.
On the other hand, there are some unfavorable use of the zoo to animals. When animals stay in the zoo, people are depriving them of freedom to live in a normal life in the forests and fields. Animals should stay in their normal habitat.We have the responsibilities to protect, nurture and preserving them in our environment.
Despite the fact that there are some disadvantages of having a zoo, I firmly believe that we still benefit more from it.Without the zoo observing the animals in real life is limited.
