Let me throw some light on what a zoo actually is. Well, in simple terms I must say that a zoo is but a short name for zoological park. You can also refer to it as an animal park. Yes, you heard that right…..an animal park!
Now, you must be wondering what an animal park looks like. To start with the description, it needs to be mentioned that an animal park, also known as zoological garden derives the original name from zoology. Zoology is further derived from Greek terms zoon that means animal and logos that refers to study. Thus zoology is the study of animals.
In a zoo, you can get to see varieties of animals. Some of the animals include lions, tigers, monkeys, elephants, chimpanzees, baboons, zebras, giraffes, panthers, wild cats, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards and so many others. You can also come across different types of snakes as well as various kinds of birds, which are not seen quite often. The zoos preserve these animals and even are homes of thousands of endangered species of animals and birds.
