Sophie Bear visits Colchester Zoo

Sophie Bear is going to visit Colchester Zoo today. Her friends in Westlands Early Years classes go every year but today Miss Wellsbury was just taking her!

Sophie walked around the zoo meeting lots of new friends.

Hello - looks like a bad hair day for someone ...

Sophie is ill "Wow!", said Sophie, "These look weird.". Miss Wellsbury explained that they are warthogs. Just like in the Lion King - said Sophie!

Sophie met an Orangutang who was just finishing his lunch. He doesn't look very happy - Sophie, stop waving at him - you'll disturb his lunch!

"I'm hungry,", said Sophie, "even the lioness has had a takeaway delivered look!". "Let me explain," said Miss Wellsbury, "it's not a takeaway - her keepers put her lunch in there so she has to hunt for it. It's a game!". "Like hide and seek?", "Yes." "I don't like my food hidden - I just want lots of it!", said Sophie - greedy bear!

Everybody was having their lunch, even the giraffes! Look how long his tongue is. Sophie held out a carrot and he bent down and licked it up off her hand! "URGGGH - slimey!", said Sophie!

An icelandic blonde tiger "This tiger is old" said Sophie. Miss Wellsbury told her that he is a white tiger. "But old people have white hair!"

Baby Kito likes playing games with people. "That game looks fun" said Sophie.


Rosa is also expecting a baby but Sophie was disappointed because she couldn't see her bump! "That might not be Rosa" said Miss Wellsbury.

Sophie was amazed at the owl. It could turn its head all the way around. Sophie tried to copy but she hurt herself and started to cry. What a silly bear!



Have you ever been to a zoo? What was your favourite animal? E-mail Sophie to tell her. She loves getting e-mails!
