Animal Planet’s One-of-a-Kind Series “The Zoo” Moves to 8PM ET/PT on Saturdays

Animal Planet’s THE ZOO, the first-ever series to go behind the scenes at the world-famous Bronx Zoo, moves to the new time of 8PM ET/PT beginning this Saturday, May 23. The series documents an unscripted look at the knowledge and diverse skills needed to operate a zoo, the close relationship between the keepers and animals, and the day-to-day activities at the Bronx Zoo as it focuses on the importance of zoos and aquariums to a wide range of global wildlife conservation efforts.

In the May 23 episode, two newborn fawns form a special bond when hand-reared together at the zoo’s health center; Khazo, an Amur leopard, relishes more keeper interaction thanks to a new enhancement in her exhibit; and skill and experience are evident as the reptile staff draw blood from a pair of Cuban crocodiles for a genetic testing program with the American Museum of Natural History.
