Today was a great sightseeing day at the zoo. I have known about more facts about some rare animals that I have never seen before.
After a long sleep, I went to have my breakfast and went on the coach straight to the zoo without going to Sawston College to have classes. Once my group and I went in, we went to the owls cage and we found some similar species of Harry Potter's mail delivering owl. In all of the animals, I liked the penguins the most, so I chose them to be my science project topic. Before I thought penguins only lived in Artic but it turned out that two of the species can live in hotter places. Today's temperature was 24 degrees and those penguins impressed me. Just in time, my group and I arrived and saw a penguin swimming in the pond. They indeed were very beautiful. Time flies extremely fast. I was notified that it was five in the afternoon when I though it was still three!
Time doesn't wait...Everything I'm impressed for went so fast, as well as this trip, it was the seventh day already! Time to sleep for the next day!
A week in the Cambridge Programmes passed soo fast. And it was finally the day we longed for - the Whipsnade Zoo! There were lots and lots and lots of animals.
We arrived and we first saw the Lemurs. They were hanging around in the branches.
We then saw some chimpanzees eating onions; we also saw rhinos, and sealions performing.
Then we saw a wonderful bird show with an awesome end. There were parrots flying all over our heads!
Then we saw tigers, lions, meetcats standing up on the look out, crocodiles sleeping and penguins skimming in the water. At last, we went to the butterfly house. Different sizes of butterfly fluttering around our heads.
Unlike the past week, we didn't need to have lessons today! Instead, we went to the famous Whipsnade Zoo for the entire day.
It was a massive zoo and we couldn't go to every part of it. We saw lemurs, chimpanzees, cheetahs and many different kinds of animals. Among all those we saw, the bird show was the best.
At first we thought it was normal because the first bird didn't listen to the zookeeper's orders. However, when it was the last bit, plenty of colourful parrots came out in one go. We also had to raise our hands and call their names if we wanted the birds to fly near us!
Except looking at the the animals, we also learnt lots of facts through visiting the Whipsnade Zoo. What a fruitful day!
