- Interstellar Zoo story 1 answer
I'm trying to identify a short story that I once read. Possibly in a collection by Bruce Coville.
A traveling intergalactic zoo stops at earth and everyone pays money to see the aliens on board. At the end you find out that the inhabitants of the zoo were paying customers as well, who were visiting the earth-life. (Safely behind bars of course, humans are uncivilized)
