Snow in the Outback at ZSL London Zoo
Monday 5 January 2009
Here’s something that you don’t see everyday - snow in the Outback. The antipodean inhabitants of ZSL London Zoo’s Outback exhibit were intrigued by the snowy landscape covering their home this morning, which is usually a dry and barren land.
The Outback exhibit is home to wallabies and emus. ZSL London Zoo opened the new Outback exhibit in August 2008 in a bid to raise awareness of the difficulty animals’ face living in extreme conditions. It is situated on the Mappin Terrace, the same site as was once home to Polar Bears.
