4. Zoo Business and Zoo

The eight segments in this program include: Butterfly Magic - Keeping a constant supply of butterflies at the zoo's butterfly house is a huge job. Plants have to be grown, eggs collected, caterpillars fed, pupae carefully stored, and butterflies caught up and released back for the public to enjoy. The Last Ride - The Fun Fair at the zoo is closing down. The zoo has changed a lot over the years, with enclosures getting bigger and better. The Fun Fair no longer seems right at the zoo; so now it's going, and even the elephants will get a bigger enclosure. Close Encounters - There is a part of the zoo where people not only come to look at the animals - but can touch them too! That special place is the education center, where children of all ages get to feed the squirrel monkeys, touch frogs and lizards, and even have a close encounter with a snake! Market Day - Each week zoo animals chomp their way through thousands of dollars of the freshest fruits and vegetables. Keeper Tony's job is to buy it all. He goes to the market every week with a long shopping list of animals' favorites. A Star is Born - Every year an artist at the zoo chooses an animal to draw for the zoo's yearly calendar. Three puma kittens have just been born at the zoo, and they will be the stars this year. Photographs are taken, then pictures drawn and colored before the final calendar is finished. A Nose for Peanut Butter - It's an exciting day for the elephants at the zoo. A film crew is there to make an advertisement for peanut butter - and the elephants have a starring role! Fun Run - Today it's the animals' turn to watch the humans, as they run through the zoo on a Fun Run. Big Day Out - The animals from are having a "day out." They have gone to a market place to help promote the animal sanctuary. The public has very different reactions to the animals, which include a dingo, an owl, a lizard, and a wombat, called Patrick, who is carted around in his own wheelbarrow limo. 02/09DE PI 15 min.
