The first zoos kept their animals in separate cages or in areas with fences or walls around them. A zoo must have a large staff too operate properly. The director is the head of the zoo and the curator is the manager and supervises the workers. Most of them, however, did not like living alone. They missed the excitement and thrilling life that they had in nature. Today, zoos try to create an environment that is more natural to the animals and the visitors who watch them. Keepers take care of animals and vets give them medical care.

This book was interesting in some parts, but in some parts it was boring. I especially liked learning how zoo keepers hid vitamins in sweet fruits, like an apple, for many of the animals. But, the beginning was boring, because it hadn't gotten into the part about feeding the animals.
