Everybody loves animals. This is because animals are pure and innocent and everyone has a favorite. This is why zoos are such a popular place for people to attend, especially children. There's nothing like bringing a child to a zoo and guiding them around, seeing the expression on their faces as they see a new animal that they have never seen before, or see an animal that they have seen in a book before and decided is their favorite. It is a fantastic thing to expose children to animals, as it gives them an appreciation of life, and also gives them a chance to gush over how cute or cool the animals are. However, there is one major downfall when it comes to zoos, and that is that you can't get very close to the animals at all, and if you can, then you are usually separated by some glass or a gate. This problem is circumvented, however, by attending a petting zoo.
