Q: What is the difference between zoo and menagerie ?
A: @michael810: A menagerie is any collection of animals that are on exhibit or meant to be looked at. A zoo is a type of menagerie. We just call them zoos though and never refer to them as menagerie. Zoos are for the public's enjoyment and education about animals. They can be large (exhibits with lions, penguins, pandas, zebras, elephants, etc.) or small (containing regional animals like otters, fish, rodents, petting zoos)

-The private collector has an extensive menagerie of bird species.

examples: "Im in the shower"
"I'm in the kitchen"

In, bedroom, bathroom, the school, the store

at examples would be

at, the zoo, the park, the store

some could be both. Mainly you would say at if you are at an outside area. Or outside of a place or building.

Use in if you are actually inside the place, if that makes sense

So you could be at the school which means you are in the parking lot or outside. But then you could say your in the school. Which means you are inside the school building

hope that make sense
