We have taken this simple card trick to another level!
Peter Monticup has come up with a SECOND routine, not included in the printed instructions that come with the trick.
You will be able to do TWO tricks with this set of cards.

A very nice card effect based on a trip to the zoo!
And with the second effect we give you, this becomes a whole DOUBLE routine.
And both are easy enough for a child to PERFORM!
NO CARD SKILLS NEEDED!
A DAY AT THE ZOO lets you perform two different effects with the same set of cards.
Choose either one, or do both as an entire routine!
Here's the first effect:
Start with two piles of animal cards.
Each pile has cards showing 13 different animals.
The two piles have the same 13 animals, but the cards in the piles are in different order.
The spectator selects one card from his pile, face down.
It is a free choice- no force!
The selected card is placed back in the pile, face down, but jogged out a bit, like it is a bookmark.
With the two piles side by side, you start to turn over the top card on each pile, at the same time.
Each time, the two cards do not match.
When you come to the selected card, you remove that card and set it aside, along with the corresponding card from the other pile.
Now you continue to turn over the top card from each pile.
Again, the pairs do not match.
After you have turned over all the cards, you reach over to the two cards you set aside, the spectator's chosen card and the corresponding card from the other pile.
Those cards are turned over- AND THOSE TWO CARDS MATCH!
But wait- there's MORE!
Both card piles are now turned face down again, and given a magical tap.
The pairs of cards are now turned face up, two by two- AND EVERY PAIR MATCHES!
Here's the second effect:
You make two piles of cards.
Both piles have five cards, and the cards are of the same five animals.
Using a simple spelling system, you allow your spectator to jumble up the two piles of cards.
Incredibly, though there are literally hundreds of ways the cards could end up arranged, when the pairs of cards are pulled off the two piles- ALL THE PAIRS MATCH!
These are two great card effects that are not only stunning, but easy to do.
And they are fun for all of your spectators to watch!
