Week off (Tuesday): Banham Zoo
On Tuesday I went to the zoo with my Dad and we saw the animals. First we saw the penguins they have a new pool but they did not go in it they stood on the sand and waddled. They were very cute. Then we saw the meerkats they looked just like in the adverts but they were stood under a lamp to keep warm. Then we walked through the lemurs they were sunbathing and one did a big wee from the roof. Then we saw the owls I like owls. Then we saw the tigers there are actually tigers! One was pacing up and down and the other was asleep. Later the lady came to feed them meat and they stood at the fence right next to us they ate a lot of meat. Then we saw the snow leopard which was hard because it was the same colour as the pebbles. Then we went to Amazing Animals it is an indoors show we saw performing rats and a macaw and a bird who bashed a plastic snake to death. Then we got our hands stamped and went to a pub for a birthday lunch because the food was better.

Then we went back and saw the Birds of Prey display a vulture flew low over my head and I was very startled I'm glad my Dad didn't have his camera ready. Then we saw the zebras and the camels and the wolf. Then we went to see the kangaroos and there was a little kangaroo in mummy's pouch eating the grass. Then we saw the leopards but they were in separate cages because they are new in the zoo for breeding reasons. Then we saw the cheetah it could not run very far. Then we smelt the horses and we walked on quickly. Then we went to see the giraffes and they were in their house walking about and biting leaves not outside on the huge patch of grass. And we saw the marmosets and the endangered monkeys and the red pandas and the scarlet ibis and the deer and the flamingoes and the Mongolian sheep but we did not see the otters they were hiding. Then at the end of the day we went back to see the penguins because penguins are great and we had Penguin Cove to ourselves before they chucked everybody out. I liked Banham Zoo it is in Norfolk it is expensive but zoos are.
