DESCRIPTION:
(from Animal Planet's press release, February 2018) Animal Planet's THE ZOO, the first-ever series to go behind the scenes at the world-famous Bronx Zoo, returns for an all-new season on Saturday, March 10 at 9 PM ET/PT. THE ZOO shares an unscripted look at the knowledge and diverse skills needed to operate a zoo. It focuses on the level of care given to the animals, the bond that exists between the animals and the staff, and how the higher purpose of zoos and aquariums is conservation of species in the wild. All-new stories and animals this season include Dave, a red kangaroo who bounces back from arthritic symptoms after undergoing chryotherapy; breeding komodo dragons; keepers training bats, a golden eagle and Indian gharials; the head-starting of hellbenders, a giant salamander found in Eastern North America, for introduction into the wild; and how a keeper deals with retiring after 31 years of caring for Happy, Patty and Maxine, the zoo's three female Asian elephants.
