The Mumzels have discovered a petting zoo in the woods near their nest. because the Mumzels are curious about what a petting zoo is, they go and take a look.
“are you coming” with the Mumzels to the petting zoo?
The first animals the mumzels encounter eats everything, likes to play football and prefers to lie in the mud all day long. they have a round nose with 2 large holes and a curly tail.
It looks like a tasty snack passed by.
Mice are not safe for this animal, would mumzels be safe? hopefully he won’t come after the Mumzel. the Mumzel has just filled his bag with food in the feed shed. would the mummy use it to feed the animals at the petting zoo or himself?
The Mumzels have discovered young Nubian Goats
These goats have very long ears and they are very sweet and playful.
They want to play with the Mumzels. They have a competition to see who gets to the other side of the meadow first. Which mumzel and goat will win?
Very small but when she is in the meadow with the big one, she pretends to be the boss.
She is very sweet and you can ride her also she likes carrots and sugar cubes. Every day she wants to be brushed and a nice thick pack of hay before going to sleep.
Her name is Julia and the Mumzel tries to pet her. Julia likes that very much.
The Mumzels are in the mood for an egg.
There are a lot of chickens in the chicken shed. Alone outside does the Rooster walk to guard the hen house. The Mumzels try to distract the Rooster so that they can sneak in without the rooster sounding the alarm. Do you think the mumzels will manage to get into the hen house?
From grass to milk
Do you ever drink milk? The Mumzels think Milk is made of Grass. Because they see this animal eating grass and when the mumzels hit the animal’s udders, Milk comes out.
You probably know that this is a cow.
But the Mumzels wonder how the cow can turn grass into milk.
The Mumzel is sleeping, is that okay?
They have very small legs and a very big belly. They like to sleep very much, just like the Mumzel. They grow to 60 cm high and can grow to 65 kg. They have small pointed ears and look a bit like pigs. These animals also eat everything.
Do you see the green Mumzel in the window? He is worried about the purple Mumzel. Because when the animal starts to roll over in its sleep, the purple Mumzel will be as flat as a coin
Most beautiful animal of the petting zoo
It’s a bird, only you don’t see them often flying. What this Bird does have is a beautiful bunch of feathers. The Mumzels are startled when the Bird shows its feathers. because it is quite a spectacle , so beautiful and large . The bird can use its feathers to impress the female bird or to scare away predators or mumzels.
Visiting the Dwarf goats
The Mumzels are now with the goats. They have very small legs. That’s because they’re dwarf goats. They are sweet and cute and sometimes a bit stubborn. The dwarf goats also like to play with the mumzels,
The mumzels are only a lot smaller than the dwarf goats so be careful not to knock them over while playing.
Quack, Quack, Quack
They love swimming in the water and they can also fly bits. they are a lot smaller than geese and swans. sometimes a less beautiful swan is named after an ugly duckling. while ducks are actually not ugly at all or do you think they are?
The Mumzels like to take the ducks around on the water and with a bit of luck they will also fly together.
Ducks also like to be fed. often when they see that you are standing at the water’s edge with a bag of bread, they come flying in with a lot of ducks at the same time.
Candies or Droppings
The Mumzels are with the rabbits, They are nice and soft and the Mumzels prefer to cuddle with rabbits all day long. They love carrots and have very cute long ears. You will see rabbits on every petting zoo. Many people also have a rabbit as a pet.
Because they are not big and very nice to keep. The only drawback is that they leave their droppings everywhere when they run loose.
you should not see those droppings as candies. because they don’t taste that good.
The yellow mumzel found out too late that they weren’t sweets
A donkey does not hit the same stone 3 times.
You can’t say that about some Mumzels. They often get themselves in trouble.
Donkeys are sweet and look a bit like Horses. They can live up to 25 to 40 years and are very strong. donkeys are often used to transport things for people. donkeys also make a very nice sound .. can you imitate that sound?
Thank you for coming with the Mumzels to the petting zoo.
Without you the Mumzels didn’t know what animals live there. You did a great job helping the Mumzels today.
The Mumzels are now very tired from their adventure at the petting zoo and are going to sleep. Will you help the mumzels next time they go on an adventure?
They could really use your help.
See you next time
