Hi my name is Tommy. My birthday is coming up and my parents were planning something for it. They let me pick between going to the zoo or my grandma’s house. I guess it was a no brainer. To tell you the truth my grandma isn’t the most exciting person in the world. I was thrilled! I took my brand new camera and was going to make a scrapbook of one animal. My favorite animal in the whole world are zebras. Meeting Tommy
I’ve always wanted to know why zebras have those stripes all over their body. I finally got my answer when I went to the zoo. Zebras have those stripes for camouflage. “Camouflage” means to blend into your environment. Who knew that animals could play such fun games? Hide and Seek
Rock-a-bye baby Baby zebras names’ are foals. They can walk 20 minutes after they’re born. After an hour, they can run. They would be great at the Olympics!
Zebras have to watch out for animals like lions and hyenas, since they are these creature’s predators. Run Away!!!!!
Zebras are herbivores. This means that they don’t eat meat. Instead, they feed on grasses and plants. I guess you could think of them as watching their weight. Unlike lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! Meat? I don't think so!
These creatures’ stripes are like fingerprints. No two are alike. Zebras are so admired that they are even made into movie stars. I’m a MOVIE STAR!!! All About Me
Bye! Bye! Tommy Well that’s about it. I hope you enjoyed all the pictures and information in my scrapbook. Maybe the next time I go to the zoo, I could make one about some other animal.
