This page is the perfect site for children who love the zoo. There is a vast collection of zoo coloring pictures. It is time to learn more about the animal.
A zoological garden or zoo is a facility where animals are displayed within the enclosures exposed to the public and where they can also be raised. The term zoo refers to zoology, the study of animals.
Despite their supposed concern for animals, zoos are rather “collections” of exotic animals: they are not shelters or homes for animals. Even under the best conditions, it is impossible to duplicate or come close to recreating something to their original habitat.
The animals are prevented from performing most of the behaviors that are innate and vital to them, such as running, flying, climbing, or being accompanied by other species’ companions.
Zoos only teach the public that it is acceptable to interfere and keep animals in captivity, despite their boredom, overcrowding, loneliness, and deprivation of the most basic natural ways of their species.
Often animals that occur together in the wild are also put together in zoos. In addition to the animals, there are often playgrounds and a terrace or restaurant where you can eat or drink something.
For a trip to the zoo, your child does not have to be able to walk yet, but it is fun when he has some awareness of animals and the sounds they make, for example. From the age of one and a half years, your child usually understands what animals are and that they are fun to watch. After that, the zoo is fun with children of all ages.
