Junior zoo keeper experience

“Today I went on my junior keeper experience- that I got for my 9th birthday from my Nanny and Grandad. It was the best day ever- at the start if the day me and my Daddy went and met Hilary- she know everything there is to know about the animals and how to look after them. We first went to muck out the Bongo's- it was a big job but we got it done (least it wasn't the giraffe enclosure- that's massive). We then went and fed the giraffes- they have tongues longer than arm- they are also gooey and rough at the same time- weird. Next we did the most awesome part- we got to stroke the rhinos- really they're just like huge dogs. We made fruit kebabs for the lemurs and then got to throw stinky, slimy fish at the penguins. I think anyone who loves animals should do this experience. I'm going to save my pocket money to do it again. ”
