A visit to a zoo

            A visit to zoo gives us true knowledge about the birds and animals. We can see the wildlife in their natural state in the zoo. It is a place of great recreation and information.

            I am an animal lover. I wish to see various types of animals. Once I got an opportunity to visited by thousands of people every day. It has a large number of different kinds of animal’s birds, reptiles and snakes. They are kept in cages and are most carefully looked after.

            The zoo at Luck now is situated in a open space near Hazratganj. It is visited by thousands of people every day. It has a large number of different kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and snakes. They are kept in cages and are most carefully looked after.

            We bought two tickets and entered the zoo through the main gate. We first visited the tank, the water of which was green, ducks, fish, cranes and other water birds were swimming happily on its surface. They presented a very beautiful sight.

            Then we saw the monkeys. They were of various colors. These monkeys climbed up the trees and swung from their branches. They played several tricks and we felt amused by those tricks. Some of the monkeys made faces at us. A monkey with a black face amused himself by looking at his face in a mirror.

            After this, we went to a very big enclosure. A lion and a lioness lived in it. They looked to be very furious and wild. The lioness was basking in the sun while the lion was striking her with his paw. Perhaps he was making love with the lioness. Near their enclosure were large cages in which there were tigers, leopards, panthers and wolves. These animals were roaring and wagging their tails.

            Then we saw a rhinoceros behind big enclosure. It seemed to be having the strength of a giant. We also saw crocodiles lying on the bank of an artificial channel. They seemed to be dead. There were also the giraffes, the zebra, the kangaroos, the ostriches and the elephants. We also saw several camels in a sandy patch.

            Thereafter we saw a large august of Snakes. They were of different sizes and colors. They were kept in glass cages and looked very fearful. We saw some water snakes as well. I was told by a guide that some of the snake was extremely poisonous. I saw some green snakes which looked like the boughs of a green plant.

            We spent nearly four hours in the zoo. The visit added vastly to my knowledge. I felt that I had visited a new world. It was quite a rewarding experience to visit a zoo.

A Visit To A Zoo

I was going to Faizabad with my father. I expressed my desire to see the zoo at Lucknow on the way. He agreed and we got down at Lucknow. He deposited our luggage in clock- room.

After taking our bath and heavy refreshment we hired a tonga and reached the zoo. We bought our tickets and entered the zoo. As we entered the compound, we saw a small house surrounded by a wire net. Inside it, we saw a number of snakes of all sizes and colours. For the first time in my life, I saw a grey snake a as thin  as the small finger. There were snakes called pythons. They seemed to be two or three quintals heavy.

Then we saw a tank full of all kind of coloured fish. They were leaping about and swimming beautifully in the clear water. In another tank we saw small hills and rocks on which a crocodile was basking. It got down and disappeared in the water. There were many crocodiles on the land. Some were dozing. Some were taking rest under the tree.

We also saw many kinds of birds of all kinds and colours. The ostrich was as large as the camel. There was a large number of bright red little robins. They were singing. It was all a beautiful scene. I saw many kinds of monkeys also the were black, white and red, big and small. The peacocks were dancing merrily. There were white peacocks. It belongs to Japan. It was my first chance to see a white peacock. There were many kinds of monkeys and parrots – very small and very big like kite.

Then   I saw the deer and rhinoceros. The rhinoceros was a big animal with a heavy thick skin. He was surrounded by the iron bars. In fact all the animals in a cage were surrounded by a bar fence.

The most interesting thing was the wonderful sight of tigers moving about freely in the open behind the enclosures. Their place was surrounded by a broad ditch of water. So we had nothing to fear. We also saw the King of the forest, the lion. I had never seen a lion before. So I was wondered and frightened. The lion had a brown colour. His body was bare but he had long hair on his neck. His head was large and the eyes were bright and shining. Sometimes he yawned and showed his large teeth and big mouth. I saw many other wild beasts like the panther, the leopard, and other whose names I could not know. I read the labels on every door and knew what animals there were.

We returned to station with a lasting impression on our mind. Now we’re had to go to Faizabad with a memory. It was a new experience. It was a learning without class room. It increased my knowledge. Everybody must see the zoo when it is possible.

The Zoo Animal I Like Most


The Lion

The zoo is a place where different kinds of animals are kept. I have  been to the zoological park in Delhi several times and I have liked  most of the animals and even birds such as lions, tigers, deer, monkeys,  bears, wolves, apes, chimpanzees, rhinoceroses, zebras, kangaroos, yaks,  parrots, crows, sparrows, pigeons, cranes, storks, doves cuckoos,  nightingales, swallows, sea-gulls, skylarks. etc.

I don’t think it will be rude on my part if I name a particular  among all these animals and birds which I like most. And when I name  this animal, all may not accept my choice to be an ideal one.

It must be admitted that linking of things and creatures are always  individual and may not always be much explained or even if explained,  such explanations given may not always sound convincing.

Now, breaking all suspense, I must declare that I like the lion  most. I need not remind anybody that the lion is proverbially known  as the king of the forest. As such, it is a wild animal who detests being  kept in chains. In spite of this the lion is there caged in the zoo behind them, steel bars as if it were a ruthless murderer or a criminal who has  committed some heinous crime. What foil this sacrifice by a king, may  be the king of the forest? Only for the recreation, amusement and  entertainment of human beings like me.

So, I must be full of gratitude to the lion for his being in the zoo  for me or for the likes of me. Even otherwise, the lion has a dignified  demeanour. It has a large head and large mouth with sharp teeth. A thick long mane of hair hangs from its neck. It has a large body. It is generally of golden colour though a few white lions are also there in the world. It has strong paws. It eats flesh of other animals. Another animals are afraid of it. When it roars, it sends a shudder through their frames.

The main objective of this website is to provide quality study material to all students (from 1st to 12th class of any board) irrespective of their background as our motto is “Education for Everyone”. It is also a very good platform for teachers who want to share their valuable knowledge.

A zoo is a place where various birds, animals and reptiles are kept. A zoo does not contain ordinary birds and animals which we usually see in our villages and towns. It contains those birds and animals which we cannot generally see. Most of them live in forests. Some of them are brought from other countries also, as they are not found in our country. A visit to a zoo is a pleasure. It is informative and educative too. Zoos are there in almost all the big cities. We have zoos in Delhi, Calcutta, Bombay, Madras, Mysore and also in Hyderabad. The zoo at Hyderabad is named as Nehru Zoological Park.

Many people, young an old, boys and girls, from villages and cities visit this zoo. It is located on the outskirts of Hyderabad in an extensive area under the Mir Alam tank. Entrance to the zoo is by tickets. It is open from 10 a.m. onwards. There are separate enclosures for birds, animals and reptiles. Tigers and lions have separate well protected enclosures. After entering the zoo which has a beautiful garden in its front, one comes across the enclosures meant for birds. One can see there different kinds of parrots, pigeons, peacocks and other birds of different colors and from different countries. One can also see the ostrich, a bird which cannot fly. It is an African bird.

In the next enclosure deer of all kinds, including black bucks, a rare Indian variety, are kept. Then one goes to the enclosure of elephants and camels. Elephants are very huge animals. Camels are the ugliest. Children can have joy rides on elephants and camels. Then one moves on to the artificial lake where crocodiles are kept. Next is the enclosure kept for zebras and bears. Giraffe is an attraction for children.

Next comes the tiger enclosure. There are Indian tigers, brown in color, with black stripes. There are also two white tigers which are a rare variety. There are a few leopards and cheetahs also. The Nehru Zoological Park has a separate enclosure for lions where they can be seen roaming freely. One can go in a closed safari park van and have a close look at them.

There are canteens to take lunch and benches to take rest under the green woods. On the other side one can see different kinds of monkeys, chimpanzees and guerrillas which are man's ancestors. Then comes the reptile section where different kinds of snakes are kept. There is a separate enclosure for animals and reptiles which move during nights. The enclosure is dark and has dim light. One can see the nocturnal creatures moving about in darkness. There is a train to take one on ride all around the zoo.

When one leaves the zoo in the evening, he leaves it with pleasant memories of birds, animals and reptiles which are also creations of God and which have a right to live with us in this wonderful world. Man owes a duty to protect all the creatures of God as he protects himself. A visit to a zoo - isn't it informative and educative !
