A visit to a zoo

Zebras are stripy I’m sure you can see, Yaks chewing cud as slow as can be, X-ray tetra in the aquarium are seen, Warthogs with curly, white tusks that gleam, Vertebrates aplenty, some invertebrates too, Usually are seen at a visit to a zoo. Tapirs with their long funny noses, Slithering snakes in glass fronted enclosures, Roaring tigers with camouflage stripe, Quizzical otters eat eggs that they like, Puma black prowls through the bush, Orange orangutans needing a brush. Never one to refuse a tasty dish Macaroni penguins smell of fish, Lions in the sunlight all day sleeping, Komodo dragons quietly creeping, Javan Rhinoceros with skin like armour, Indian elephants size makes such drama, Hippos with their mouths open wide, Galapagos tortoise, oh what a prize! Fennec fox with really long ears, Endangered animals that people fear, Dangerous animals taking a nap, Caiman and crocodile waiting to snap, Bold zoo keepers picking up poo, All able to be seen at a trip to the zoo.
