I saw my animal in the zoo but the guide did not speak about it and i could not take pictures because he was at the end of the cage so i could not see.
My experience sharing with my classmates and teachers was a good and interesting idea to go to Buin Zoo ,so we learn more about the animals because it is more fun and entertain us more by going to a field trip to stay in class.
