Zoo animals Versus Wild animals
Almost all of us grow up with fond memories of visiting the zoo with our parents or friends. Where else do you get to see those amazing, elephants or those giraffes with their long, long, necks? The zoo is the only place where you can see these amazing animals up close. Do zoo animals live longer than wild one or wild animals live longer than zoo one. Zoo animals versus wild animals can be seen as a metaphor for the story of “Living like a Weasel”
Like a wild weasel. He sleeps in his underground den and killing rabbits, mice and birds for living. Some animals in captivity live shorter lives than ones in the wild, because they are often more stressed and are unable to do various things that wild animals can do or learn to do in the wild. A wild animal needs space and freedom. Though animals are safer and cared for in a zoo, they belong in the wild. They have been created in such a way that they can defense for themselves and need not depend on us humans. Do you think they can live in a cage or in an enclosure? Do you think they can adjust to living their life as a zookeeper wants them too? No, they cannot adjust to a cage or to a small patch of land in zoo. They were born free and want to live life on their own terms. They needs their freedom, needs to hunt their own food, and they need the wild, because they are from the wild and the wild run in their blood.
Grabbing the audiences’ attention Going to the zoo seems completely normal and extremely fascinating for most families, but what happens behind the scenes is where going to the zoo doesn’t seem all that realistic. Thesis There are many reasons why it is not right for wild animals to be caged up and taken away from their homes and put into a zoo for public display. MP1 The animals inside of zoos ...
On the other side, I think that animals in captivity live longer than their wild counter parts, because they are fed everything they need, and if they get a disease, the zookeepers can help them get treatments. Unlike in the wild they would not even know and certainly would not have any help. For some species, it is safety, and overall future population needs have to be considered when deciding where may be the safest place for many wild exotic animals.
Just like a weasel instinct that bites his prey at the neck and does not let go no matter survive or die. The critically endangered, and endangered species need protection, breeding programs for reintroduction to the wild, and many species need, general observation, and study, so we might learn to aid them in their native habitat in the future. Also some species live longer in the zoo setting than in the wild, for instance the Polar Bear lives longer in the zoo than in the wild. But the Elephant usually lives longer in the wild than in the zoo. The average lifespan of zoo elephants is about 16-18 years, while wild elephants can live 50-70 years, so that type of information needs to be considered when making decisions about where animals need to be.
Animals in cages are a sad sight. They are fed by men in due course they lose their capacity to hunt. They need enough space to move and they should be allowed to live in their own habitat. Once you release these animals in the forest they will die soon of starvation because they cannot hunt.
It can be both! It depends on the animal, some lives longer in captivity. While other lives longer in the wild. So it is yes, and no, depending on the species, the zoo’s quality of care, environment and if the animal was born in the zoo. All of these factors, along with many more will effects the life span of an animal. All animals including man have a habitat to live which is Nature’s creation and nobody can violate the rule of the Nature.
