The world is full of animals -

    The large ones and the small;

The little ones who squeak and hide

    And those who’re very tall.

 

Some are brown and others black.

    Some have spotted coats

Some kill others for their meat,

    Whilst some eat grass, like goats.

 

Some are quiet but others roar

    And some just bark or mew,

But don’t forget the human ones -

    The ones like me and you.

 

Most animals walk on their feet

    But one can really fly:

Look at the sky when day is done.

    You’ll see one flying by.

 

Bats aren’t birds but animals,

    And whales and dolphins too,

But if you want to see lots more

    Just visit any zoo.

 

You’ll meet so many animals

    You’ve never seen before:

The creatures of the day you’ll see,

    Whilst those of night will snore.

 

Our world’s a fascinating place

    And it really seems to me

There’s somewhere for us all to live

    On land, in air and sea.
