Christmas at the ZOO
Do animals know when Christmas is coming? I don't see why not.
The zookeeper is slightly suspicious that something strange is going on when he sees Timmy the giant tortoise on a skateboard. His suspicions are confirmed when the flamingoes start wearing pink legwarmers. And, what's more the baby animals are decorating their enclosures with tinsel and looking very excited. The truth is out there. Maybe, it has something to do with Christmas?
