Last Sunday it was very cloudy. My friends and I visited the zoo. As we approached the main gate, we saw a huge crowd. Some people were buying en tickets, some were chatting while others were relaxing under the shady trees.
We entered the zoological garden and came to a beautiful lake in which some aquatic birds like ducks and swans were swimming. Looking at the white ducks on the smooth surface of water is a charming sight. As we moved, we came to the enclosure in which flying birds (fowls) were kept. They ranged from sparrows, eagles and parrots to pigeons of various colours. The birds were chirping. It was an enchanting music. We enjoyed it very much.
In the next enclosure, there were lions and leopards, tigers and tigresses whose roars were deafening. We approached the net. A lion rushed towards us and we were frightened. Their fierce looks were frightening.
After seeing them, we came across a garden in which stags and deer were frisking about. These animals were very beautiful. In one of the corners of the garden, there was a huge tree on which monkeys and baboons were jumping. Their tricks and pranks were very pleasing.
Some people offered them food and they immediately came down to take it. Children, as well as adults who tried to tease the animals were severely reprimanded by others, “What if someone teased you like that?”
Our next halt was at an aquarium in which we were most interested. Also a large number of aquatic birds were kept there. There were fishes of many species and colours. To see them fidgeting in water was really a delightful spectacle. There were many other aquatic animals. Just by the side of this enclosure, we came across polar bears who looked sad and lonely.
It was the cage of the black bear that attracted a mammoth gathering. The bear was playing many tricks which thrilled the spectators. Some people offered him eatables which he gulped down at once.
The zoological park is so vast that it is very difficult to describe all the departments and enclosures. After taking one complete round of the zoo, we relaxed for some time in a cool and beautiful garden inside the zoo.
The fragrance of the flowers was tremendously soothing.
Then we had some snacks and drinks which refreshed us much. As the sun was setting, we came out of the zoo with the other visitors. We boarded the bus while casting one last and lining up to look at the zoo that is surrounded on one side by the old but majestic walls of the old fort. This added to the beauty and grandeur of the zoo. I shall always remember my thrilling experience in the zoo.
