  1. The narrator was aware that the zoos did not work towards the conservation of wildlife but acted as a mere show place of animals. They dragged the animals out of their natural habitat only to keep them enclosed in zoos for the entertainment sake. Though the narrator kept great care of his animals, almost as if they were his own children, as seen in the story, he felt dejected when N’pongo fell ill. He realized that he had uprooted an animal from the natural habitat. When Nandy was bought, the narrator had noticed that right across the top of her skull was a scar which must have measured six or seven inches in length. When she was caught, some over enthusiastic and intrepid human had given her a blow with a machete which had split her scalp like a razor slide. Nandy had such a woebegone, frightened face only because she had been too deeply hurt. The narrator understood that she would be needing time to trust humans. It took almost six months for the narrator to gain her confidence. Such inhuman behavior is meted out to animals who don’t even cause any arm to the humans.
