Stuttgart: Exotic Animals and Plants

Articles, Translations, Uncategorized

Wilhelma is more than just a zoo. The heritage-protected park is home to exotic animals as well as plants; therefore it is the only zoo-botanical garden in Germany. There are terraces with roses, old sequoia trees, a small forest of magnolias, and historic green houses, where the climate is optimal for tropical flowers. More than 10,000 animals also live on the 30 hectares. Especially popular in Wilhelma are the aquarium and the primates. The kindergarten of gorilla babies is great.

The Lonely Canary

In a big house, there once lived a lonely canary in a cage. The canary would sing every morning and delight the owners with his beautiful voice but when evening came, the canary felt lonely. One morning he woke up and found another canary with him in the cage. They became friends right away and were always together. They ate together, drank together and even sang together. The canary was so happy because he was no longer lonely.

The canary thought there was another bird in the cage, but actually, the owners had hung a mirror in his cage. The friend he saw eating, drinking and singing with him was just his own reflection in the mirror.
