[ Lesson 36]

A Visit To a Zoo

Read the given text carefully and answer the questions (1-3)

Last winter Tanin�s school had a holiday. His uncle Mr. Masud took him and some of his friends to the Zoo at Mirpur in Dhaka. They went there by bus. They saw many big and small animals. They saw lions and tigers. They also saw giraffes, rhinos, deer, snakes, bears, camels and crocodiles. They were scared to see some of the animals. But most of the animals were in cages. They saw the Royal Bengal Tiger of Bangladesh. It was big and beautiful. It was walking from this side to that side in the cage. Sometimes it stopped and looked at them. Tanin�s uncle told them not to go near the cages. Some of the animals might hurt. They saw an ape. It jumped from bar to bar in the cage. Then, it came and stood in front of them. Tanin gave it some nuts. They saw birds chirping in the cage. They were making a lot of noise. Some of them had very bright and colourful feathers and long beaks. They saw fishes swimming in the water in tanks. They also saw some big elephants and some baby elephants.

Tanin saw an animal he had never seen before. �What is it?� He wondered. He looked at the sign on the cage. The name of the animal started with the letter M. �Is it a monkey?� he asked himself. But he was sure that it was not a monkey.

�Is it a mouse?� he asked his friend Sohel. �No, it is too big.� �Is it a mole?� �No, it is too small.� He knows that a mole lives underground. �What animal is it in the cage?� Tanin asked his uncle. �That�s a mongoose.� said his uncle. After lunch they had a ride on a camel. They went round the zoo for a longtime. So they became tired . But they enjoyed the visit to the zoo very much.
