The Zoo Song Characters

Let's meet the Zoo Song animals

There are lots of different animals in the Zoo Song. Let's learn a bit more about each one.


Cheetah - The Cheetah is always in a hurry. He drives too fast for the road conditions. Stop, Stop, Stop... make sure the car can stop in time should there be an emergency.

Parrot Parrot - The Parrot does not concentrate on her driving - always too busy using a mobile phone. Stop, Stop, Stop... Put the phone away and you are much less likely to have a crash.
Chimps Chimps - The two chimps distract the driver by messing about in the back to the car. Stop, Stop, Stop...It is important to stop being a distraction and help the driver to concentrate on the road ahead.
Rhino Rhino - The Rhinoceros does not put on a seatbelt to drive. Stop, Stop, Stop... It is very important that everyone wears a seatbelt in the car. Being hit with the force of a charging rhino would be very painful.
Peacock - The Peacock drove dangerously showing off to his friends. Stop, Stop, Stop... the best drivers are the smoothest and safe drivers.

Why not try this...
