A Day at the Zoo

Pick an animal from the zoo. It could be your favorite animal, a random animal, or an animal you’re curious about. Do just a little research about the animal if you don’t know a lot about it–do a web search or look it up in a recent encyclopedia. You don’t need to go all-out here; just try to learn a little bit about it, maybe a few day-to-day details you didn’t know before.

If possible, find a photograph or artist’s rendering of the animal that you would choose to represent your particular animal. Go ahead and name it. Then write a journal entry or vignette from that animal’s point of view centering around a day or event at the zoo.

For inspiration, meet my favorite animal: the cheetah.
