When one thinks of a zoo, a general idea that comes to mind is a picture of animals in cages. Going to a zoo to complete a research project sounds even less exciting. However, the trip I took to the Santa Ana zoo was exciting and quite an adventure. The scenery is so full of variety from lush tropical surroundings to rough, jungle atmospheres. Animals from all over the world stare down at passing visitors and mock humans with their curious eyes and indescribable vocal sounds.

Everybody try to know more about something, but talking about animals we can know more about their life going to a zoo because there’s lot of animals from different places in a same one.

Zoos have exist from ancient and always have had the characteristics that I already describe or simply for entertainment. I agree with zoos because that’s a way to preserve the different species but sometimes animals are not in excellent conditions.
