I'm pretty sure Chester Zoo has been on Animal Planet as a series highlighting many of the inhabitants. I enjoy watching all the zoo shows especially when they show how they train the animals to target so they can conduct exams.. so interesting!!!

They have their own programme also, but I can´t remember what it is called..

Also, during the previous restrictions in the UK they did Virtual Zoo Tours, where one certain days they were doing Facebook live videos (public so even those without facebook could watch) and talks were held every hour or so by the different keepers. They have done one more this time while the zoo has to be closed, that´s when they revealed this new calf.

I've probably watched them doing an ultrasound on her. It's called the The Secret Life of the Zoo... the new season started August 1st of this year. I'm sure I've missed a few episodes!!!!

Oops, Sorry my mistake! Honestly sometimes I think I just end up consumed by chicks etc. I tell my mum ¨I´m going to see my vet¨ instead of Doctor :facepalm:
