It’s Elmo at the zoo! Oh, hi! Elmo can’t wait to learn how the zoo animals spend their day. Come on, let’s find out! Good morning, zoo animals! The animals are leaving their beds, ready to start the day. Hey! This fruit bat isn’t up yet? Rise and shine, Mr. Bat! First things first! Breakfast! Shirley, the rhino, loves his formula. Aw, how cute. This echidna needs his food smushed up. Oh, look! Justine, the beaver is having a healthy breakfast of yams. Wait! This calf eats like Cookie Monster. That’s so silly. Hey, the fruit bat is still asleep? Next, the animals get themselves all cleaned up. Some animals get help from their mommies. And some get cleaned up themselves. Hey, somebody get this guy a rubber ducky! Looks like Shirley is combining bath time with playtime. The fruit bat is still sleeping! You’re missing out on fun, Mr. Bat! Playtime! Some animals play with their mommies and daddies. And some animals play with their friends. Tag, you’re it! Tsunami, the mommy hippo, and her baby are going for a swim. What a fun day! Now it’s time to head back, and get a good night’s sleep for tomorrow. Everybody, get comfy! Oh, well! Look at that. Fruit bat is finally awake. That’s because bats are nocturnal. That means they sleep during the day and are awake at night. Good morning to you, Mr. Bat! Wow, Elmo had so much fun with all his animal friends at the San Diego Zoo. See you next time!
