Animal lovers are getting a behind-the-scenes look at the L.A. Zoo and a host of other zoos and aquariums through a series of Facebook Live videos Thursday, through a partnership with the Animal Planet network.
The avalanche of live-streaming adorable creatures content is for Animal Planet's "Inside the Zoo" feature and will provide viewers a video backstage pass, according to a release from Animal Planet. The video features keepers interacting with animals, viewer questions and discussing the L.A. Zoo's mission.
The L.A. Zoo's part of the fun begins at 1 p.m. Thursday. Here's what you can catch from the L.A. Zoo on the live stream:
- 1 p.m. Uakari monkeys in the zoo's Rainforest of the Americas habitat.
- 2:45 p.m. Viewers will get a look at the zoo's Living Amphibian, Invertebrates and Reptiles (LAIR) section in time to check out an actual feeding of Gray's monitors, a type of lizard that's native to the Philippines
- 3:20 p.m. You will be able to virtually take in the California Condor Rescue Zone
The Facebook pages for both Animal Planet and the L.A. Zoo will be streaming the content. Right now, Animal Planet is streaming a marathon of live zoo action, which you can see here.
