Exercise
You are visiting the 'Tiergarten' (animal-garden) or 'Zoo' in Berlin with your niece from Germany. Guess what she will say when she sees the following animals. Always use a form of the irregular verb 'sehen' (to see), which changes its stem from 'e' to 'ie' for the 'du' and 'er/sie/es' forms. Also use the indefinite article and think about the fact that 'sehen' comes with the accusative case (direct object => what do we see?).

Example:
ich + Elefant
ich sehe einen Elefant.
