Part of the attraction for the emissaries of planet Donar was a visit to the zoo. At ten sharp, the driver stopped in front of the compound and the delegation of six ambassadors and one host boarded the elegant chrome craft.
"We've been really looking forward to this," ambassador Kellhoum said to the state secretary. "We haven't had any zoos on Donar since the uprising."
"Very unpleasant story that," the secretary said, smiling and showing one long tooth. "We have upped the security after we've been informed of it. Considering that the species you exhibited on Donar wasn't as rebellious as those we display here... one can't be too careful"
"Quite right," said ambassador Helme, who'd been listening to their conversation. "But they were far more intelligent."
