On Friday, Chester Zoo hosted a live tour of its facilities to entertain those in isolation due to the coronavirus outbreak.The virtual tour featured close-up videos of the zoo’s menagerie of animals, including Asian elephants, butterflies and penguins.
The tour launched at 10am on the Chester Zoo’s Facebook page and featured different animals every hour from then until 4.30pm. Those wishing to tune in simply have to head to the Chester Zoo Facebook page here.
The “tour” began by showing viewers the zoo’s red pandas and will move on to the Rothschild’s giraffes at 11am.
Then, at 12noon, viewers were taken to see one of the zoo’s most popular animals: the Asian elephants.
At 1pm, it was time to see the butterflies and at 2pm, the tour arrived to see the Sun bears, a species that comes from Southeast Asia. At 2.30pm the cameras headed towards the Sumatran tiger den.
Finally, the tour came to an end by paying a quick visit to the aquarium at 4pm, where those that watched got to see all kinds of underwater creatures, from seahorses and pipefish to anemone and clownfish.
