Name one animal that lives in a zoo?
"Identify animals basic needs."
Animals in the zoo live in habitats that are similar to the places they would live in the wild. Each animal has different needs for their habitat, like room to move, places to hide, and special food and water. Zoo habitats provide a safe and comfortable home for the animals.
Animals in the Zoo and Where They Live
Habitat: A place or environment where an animal or plant normally lives and grows. Zoo: A place where animals from different parts of the world are kept for people to see, study, and enjoy. Adaptation: A change or the process of change by which an animal or plant becomes better suited to its environment.
The largest zoo habitat in the world is the African Savanna at the San Diego Zoo, which is roughly the size of 40 football fields! Giraffes use their long tongues to clean their ears and to pull leaves off of trees! Gorillas can use tools to help them with tasks such as drinking water, grooming, and reaching food!
