What is a Zoboomafoo?

"Zoboomafoo, look Mommy, it's Zoboomafoo!"

People chatter on the ground

but I know not where that's found.

Is it a fruit, or a tree;

a cloud in the sky, a new type of bee?

Bouncing away from them on hind foot and tail

in search of the creature or fail.

Though the trees I will glide

there is no place a Zoboomafoo can hide.

Jumping from one tree, hands ready to grab at;

in hope to grab the leaves of my habitat.

As I jump, I can no longer see

the tiny group of people below me.

Though in spite of feeling kind of blue

Is Zoboomafoo me, is it true?
