Activity 2 Day 18 Week 4

When you are at the zoo, you have the chance to learn about some animals that are specifically found in your country. They are called ‘indigenous’ animals. This means that they are originally from your country. Use Google to identify two indigenous animals from your country. On your blog, post a picture of the animals and tell us a bit about them. What are they called? Where do they live? What do they eat?

So the two animals I picked is a elephant and a giraffe. I have picked these two animals because I think that they are really interesting. And whenever I go to the zoo I love looking at the giraffes and the elephants especially the babies.

There are two types of elephants in the world. Their names are the Asian elephants and the African elephants. But in the Auckland zoo we have the Asian elephants. Elephants eat grasses, small plants, fruit and more.

African elephant live in  sub-Saharan Africa, the rain forests of Central and West Africa. They also live in the Sahel desert in Mali. Asian elephants live in Nepal, India and Southeast Asia in the scrub forests and the rain forests.

Giraffes live mainly in savanna areas in the sub-Saharan region of Africa. Giraffes have long necks and because of that they can reach the trees to eat leaves. They also have long tongues to help them pull the leaves off the tree.
