This Tuesday 27th Harinui Syndicate went for a visit to the Animates Pet Store at the Supa Centre in Manukau.
We walked one way and got a ride in the van the other way. It was quite a long walk, but everyone did very well. Once there we walked through the store looking at all the animals and displays.
We liked seeing the Dog Wash Area.
We enjoyed looking at the playful cats in their cages. We saw that they were well looked after. They had food, water, toys and a comfortable warm place to sleep!
We looked at the green parrot and he looked at us from his cage. We peeped at a rabbit in his home too. There were lots of fun pet houses, kennels and cages too!
We felt how soft the pet beds were and looked at the animal scales. There you can see how much your pet weights. We stood on the scales ot see how heavy we were! Then we walked to look at some pet toys.
We checked out the red eared turtle trying to climb onto a rock. Then we looked at all the fish swimming in the tanks. We saw they had clean water and stones on the bottom of the tanks.
We saw that the fish were many different colours and also there were lots of types of water weeds you could buy to decorate your fish tank. The fish like ot swim in and around the weeds and also nibble on them too.
Next we sat near the fish tanks and sketched them. We made a fishy shape and made sure we gave it eyes, a mouth, fins and a tail, and also some scales. We had to look very closely and did our best.
