2. Observing Zoo Animals' Characteristics

The eight segments in this program include: Feeding Frenzy - It's feeding time for the animals at the zoo and mouths of every shape and size are munching and crunching their dinnertime treats. Zoo Droppings - Chris has been working as a keeper at the zoo for many years, and over that time he has raked up a huge range of animal droppings, which reminds him of some rather funny stories on the subject. After Dark - When zoo visitors go home, the animals stay. Nighttime is when many are at their most active. Here we visit the zoo after dark and see what the animals get up to when the public is asleep. Feathers and Fur (Adaptations) - Animals come "wrapped" in an enormous variety of coats. They have feathers, fur, scales and shells. They come in bright colors that stand out, and patterns that blend into the background. Each has developed in specific ways to help it survive. Love at the Zoo - It isn't just people who fall in love, it's happening all over the zoo! Move to the Groove - Fast or slow, high or low, animals move in amazing ways! Tidy Toes - Animals at the zoo often get their nails clipped, filed, and even polished! Here we find out why, and see some other animal beauty routine secrets. Beware of the Cat - The big cats at the zoo may look soft and cuddly, but you shouldn't get too close! The keepers must be very sure there are good security measures in place to protect themselves, and zoo visitors, from potentially dangerous animals. 02/09DE PI 15 min.
