What we did
In science we went to Ueno zoo to study animals and man–made and natural environment. The animal I looked at was the tiger.
The environment made for the tiger was a bit small but still seemed ok for the animal to live in. Inside the man made environment they had a small water fall watering hole type place. There were also some plants but i’m not sure if they were fake or not. They looked real but you can never know.
The tiger inside the environment looked a bit sad because it kept walking in circles for a long time and didn’t look very happy.
I think we zoos so we can learn, look and study other creatures. I think people want zoos so they can see new thing and learn about the creatures they have never seen before.
If I was an animal at the zoo I would be sad because in the wild you can hunt for food whenever your hungry but in the zoo you only get food when the people give you food. Also it would be disturbing because people would look at you a lot and the children would scream and you would have no peace.
I think they could improve the man–made environment by making the environments bigger or making only a limited amount of people to look at the tiger at a time.
I think we should have a zoo but a different type of zoo were there is just a really big place with real plants, water and no people can visit that place. I think this would make the tiger really happy.
