Dan, Jen, Keith, and Mia are having an argument about which animals to visit first at the zoo. The deer, the lions, the leopards, or the giraffes. Each kid wants to see his or her favorite animal first. Dan is allergic to cats, so he doesn't like animals that are in the cat family. Jen's favorite animal doesn't have horns.
