Today we visited the National Zoo it was great. We took the Metro to a bus stop. While we waited for the Zoo Express bus to arrive we got free animal masks.The first thing we did at the zoo was was buy tickets for a dinosaur show. Then we went to see the sloth bears but we couldn't find them. So we walked over to the fishing cat we did not see it at first but later found it in a blue hammock-like-thing. we walked downhill to the amazon exhibit. We saw all sorts of fish and manta rays down stairs. Then we went upstairs and saw monkeys and birds. We also had Ben&Jerry's ice cream and went in the reptile exhibit. I wish our zoo was that cool. I look forward to doing it again.
