Who made everything you saw at the zoo? Can you find the answer in the Bible? If so, where is it found?


God made all the wild and domestic animals that are in the Zoo.

Genesis 1:25 (NIV)
God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
