My new puppy is called Monet, named after the artist Claude Monet. He has the shape of a lily pad or heart on his back. He is a Wire Haired Fox Terrier. Monet is almost eleven weeks old and his favourite toy is a plush elephant and likes chewing on the lead. Monet does puppy school once a week, he enjoys roast chicken rewards as a treat.

Take a look at this quick video.
This is a special type of tiger called a Samatran Tiger. Today I watched a tv show on people cutting down trees in a place called Sumatra. When people cut down lots of trees, they take away the Tiger’s home. It is very sad. People cut down tree’s to make paper, so it is very important to not waste paper and to recycle it.
Today I went on an excusion to the Adelaide Zoo. We went to the Education Centre. It was really fun because I got to see lots of different things. We all sat around in a big circle and we had to make sure that we did not touch the fur in the middle of the circle until we were told to. I got to touch a Snake skin, an Echidna, a Meer cat skin, but not the tortoise. The zoo keepers name was Ruth and she talked to us about naughty people that try and smuggle dead animals into Australia in their suitcase and how they get into trouble with the police. Some of these people try and sell animals at the market, they are the animals with a blue tag. The green tagged animals have died of natural causes and there is a special person in the zoo that looks after them.
I got to see the Hippo. They were eating pumpkins. I saw the Fairy Penguins, Giraffes, Otters, Tasmanian Devil, Seal, Kangaroos and Barbary Sheep. I also saw lots of Rabbits, Hamsters, the Nocturnal House and a Rooster. I had lots of fun today.
This is the cutest Baby Pygmy Hippo. She was born in Taronga Zoo and only weighed 6kg when she was born.
I was watching the news this morning and I saw Happy Feet. Not Happy Feet the movie. Happy Feet is an Emperor Penguin found a long way from home. He comes all the way from Antarctica. THAT’S A SUPER LONG WAY. (3,200km). He is now staying at the Wellington Zoo in New Zealand. http://www.wellingtonzoo.com Happy Feet has been eating sand, like he would eat snow in the Antarctic. OOoooooh Yuck! Poor Happy Feet had to have an operation to have the sand taken out of his tummy.
