A tiger with a sore toe, a stallion steps in to save a rare breed of horse, a platypus moves house and a peregrine falcon needs help if he’s to fly over 200km/h again, this week on THE ZOO.
Melbourne Zoo’s favourite tiger has a sore toe and needs to be anesthetised to see what is wrong but disaster strikes when vets can’t feel a pulse.
The Przewalski Horse is extinct in the wild but at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo keepers are striving to keep the species alive. The have their fingers crossed when a new stallion is brought into their herd to breed.
At Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria, Barak the platypus is moving to a new home interstate but he must fly business class to get there.
And at Taronga Zoo, an injured perigrine falcon has just arrived with a broken wing and is unable to fly. Vets work to fix this majestic bird’s wing so he can once again fly at speeds of over 200km per hour
Presented and narrated by MELISSA DOYLE, THE ZOO follows behind the scenes action at Australia’s top zoos.
