    Apes enclosure area.

    In India zoos apes enclosures are made by digging the ground deeper and building boundary around it. Then they dig a circular fissure inside it and fill it with water. A kid was trying to overlook the gorillas and fell into the enclosure. That kid fell few meters down and became unconscious but a female gorilla saved him. She put him on her lap and waited for the workers to come and get that kid out of the enclosure. She didn't let other gorillas come closer to the kid until he was taken out.

    Re: Apes enclosure area.

    Go back and correct the spelling of "zooes", "boundry" and "uncouncious". That will be a start, and then we'll look at the other errors.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is it correct to say "it is made by digging the ground deeper"? If we have to say that it is not levelled with the ground. It is a bit lower than the ground level.

    Re: Apes enclosure area.

    If the enclosure itself is at a lower level than the rest of surrounding land, you could say "Enclosures are built in a pit, lower than the surrounding land".

    "It is made by digging the ground deeper" is incorrect.

    Re: Apes enclosure area.

    It's also unnecessary to give such a lengthy description when the word "moat" does all the work for you.
