|My class took a trip to the Toronto Zoo.
|I had a wonderful time there.
|My favorite animals were the lions.
|They look very powerful and strong.
|They say that the lion is the king of the forest, and I think that title suits him.
|The monkeys were funny.
|They were looking at us just as much as we looked at them.
|They were swinging from branches and doing tricks to impress us.
|There was a baby monkey that was clinging to its mother’s back. It was very cute.
|The tigers were pacing back and forth.
|They seemed restless.
|The stripes on a tiger are very beautiful.
|We watched the tall giraffes as they nibbled leaves off the tallest trees.
|We spoke to a colourful parrot that spoke back to us.
|We saw exotic animals that we had never seen before.
|Some of them were very strange.
|There were different types of bears there.
|There were black bears.
|I saw a black bear once when I was camping up north.
|We saw polar bears.
|Polar bears are white.
|They like the cold.
|We even saw panda bears.
|One of my friends bought a toy panda bear from the gift shop because she thought that the pandas were so cute.
|We saw slithery snakes.
|Some of the snakes had very bright skins.
|Most of the girls were afraid of the snakes.
|The zoo keeper was looking after the snakes, and one of them hissed at him.
|He has to be very careful when he works with the snakes.
|The last thing that we saw at the zoo was the elephant.
|He was enormous.
|He looked at us; then he raised his trunk and made a loud sound.
|It made us jump.
