On Friday, it was our school tour. We took the bus and went to Dublin Zoo. We had to put on sun cream because it was very sunny! We got a tour around the zoo. We went to the African Plains.
First we saw monkeys, we learned that spider monkeys had special tails. Then we saw the waldrapp ibis. It had an ugly face but a beautiful body. The waldrapp ibis is very endangered.
Then we saw red panda’s , a male and a female. Two of them had babies but they weren’t there because they were sent to another zoo.
Then we saw penguins. They were special penguins. These penguins live in warm places. There were loads more animals. There were elephants, rhinos, gorillas, snakes, tigers, lions, sea lions, flamingos, hippopotamus’, snow leopards, tortoises, okapis, iguanas, wolves and loads more. The youngest animal in the zoo was the giraffe. We went to see more animals.
Then we played in the new playground, Play Forest. We had so much fun. Then we went back to school.
