The reason why we cans see things is because our eyes attract light, and the light goes through our eyes. The light reflects the things that we see, and to see how it works, we're going to talk about it. For starters, the cornea bends and focuses the different lights that hits your eyes, so that they can pass through the pupil. Next, the light hits the lens of your eye, which makes a perfect upside-down image at the back of your eyeball, where the retina is. Then the retina sends the image to the brain through the optic nerve, and then the brain interprets the information and forms the image in your head.

I think that our eye is one of the most important things that belong to our body. It helps us see where we're going, and helps guide us. Even though sometimes light can be too bright when looking at it directly, it still helps us see, and I am very thankful for that. 
Yesterday, we went to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo to see our animals. My animal, the Lady Ross's Turaco, is a bird that originally came from Africa. We found our animal in the African Aviary near the flamingos. 

What surprised me was that its eyes were really large, I mean, it looked large in the pictures, but when you see something in real life, it takes up a whole new perspective. Mostly because it's actually alive, and it doesn't just stay still like the pictures do. I didn't really learn anything new about it either, because there were no plaque or an information table there about the Ross's Turaco. It only showed what was in the exhibit, but luckily, I had plenty of research to know what's going on. At the African Aviary, I saw that the Lady Ross's Turaco liked to jump from branch to branch, instead of flying. I thought it was really cool, and funny, since it was so small.
However, I couldn't actually compare it to the real Turaco with my research papers, because the bird didn't really show me what its adaptations were, or what they ate. 

In conclusion, I was able to see the Lady Ross's Turaco in person, and I really enjoyed it. However, the Turaco didn't do many activities. It wasn't as active as I thought it would be. That doesn't mean that I didn't like the animal however. I'm glad I got the Lady Ross's Turaco, and I wonder if another student next year will lime
