Keeping zoo animals cool with ice lollies

During the hot summer weather zookeepers are having to come up with ways to keep animals comfortable in the heat.

Zookeepers say it is important to pay particular attention to animals during heat waves to protect them from dehydration - even those from tropical climes.
