This weekend, I went to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha with my mom, stepdad, sister, and my brothers.
It took 4 to 5 hours to get to the hotel. My family stayed in there and swam in the pool. In the morning we drove to the zoo. When we got there, we went to the desert dome.
The Desert Dome is made of pieces of triangle glass. In the desert dome, there were birds flying; a black and orange bird. It was hot with orangish sand; it looked like a desert. You can’t touch the sand, but there are boxes you can feel it in.
In the Kingdom of the Night, it was dark and we saw snakes, ailligators, and frogs. It was kind of cold and it was cool.
We went on a bridge to see fish; they were Koi fish. We saw people feed them. When people threw food in the water, they all fought to get to it. They were in big groups.
Another thing we saw was the aquarium. There, we saw sharks and sting rays. The aquarium is a tunnel you go through, and there are tanks in the walls. We saw penguins. they were swimming right by the glass. There were jelly fish; they were orange jelly fish and the lit up.
We went to the Jungle last; that was my favorite part. It was my favorite part because there were monkeys that were playing around. They were knocking on their heads and holding each other like babies. The Jungle had big trees and vines; it has two levels. It also had alligators, like the Kingdom of the Night.
It was a good day. We were there from like 9-5:30. I would want to go back; it was fun. The zoo is the best in the world.
