(ANSA) - Rome, August 22 - The staff at Rome's 'Bioparco di
Roma' zoo are lending a refreshing hand to its inhabitants
during the summer's brutal heat wave by feeding them
specially-made popsicles, depending on their breed and
preference.
While the big carnivores like tigers, leopards and lions
get giant meat-pops to gnaw, monkeys and other
vegetarian-leaning zoo lodgers get the standard fruit-flavored
treats sometimes filled with yogurt.
"Around 50 bales of hay and alfalfa, 500 kg of vegetables
and well over 300 kg of fresh fruit, mainly watermelons and
cantaloupe, are consumed daily by the zoo's herbivores," said
zoo director Paul Giuntarelli.
Extra fountains and pools have been set up for refreshment
and to "help fight boredom," Giuntarelli said.
