Zoo keepers used to keep wild animals in small cages. Today there are many zoos in which animals live as they do in nature. Hidden fences(篱笆)take the place of cages,so zoo visitors are still safe. The animals wander(徘徊)freely among plants,rocks,and watering holes as they would in their natural homes.Sometimes trainers teach animals different skills(技能)in order to take better care of them.
