We had a really fun zoo visit! The animals were named Belo (a Tenrec) and Roberta (a Red Footed Tortoise). We got to see if they went to red or green more. Belo stayed in his orange tunnel. Roberta liked green. We tallied it up and she went more times to green than red. We wanted to try new tests. We worked on worksheets. We had a lot of questions and predictions. We also got to feel the animals. Belo felt a little spiky and Roberta felt bumpy. Belo's head looked like a mouse and his back looked like a hedgehog. Here's a fact: all around Roberta's eyes were red and around her feet. That is why she is called a Red Footed Tortoise. A zoo keeper painted Roberta's feet and made her walk on a piece of paper and she made a painting for us. It was an amazing zoo visit!
