Episode 5: The Secret Life of the Zoo
Sumatran orangutans Subis, Tuti, Siska and Indah can’t be thrilled by their new quarters at Chester Zoo because they hightail it for the much more interesting environment of the Monsoon Forest roof, where they try on a fire hydrant cover and some vet’s gloves for size. The keepers know it’s going to be tricky to tempt them away from such exciting distractions.
Meanwhile, in the meerkat house, the dominant female is being physically attacked by her own daughter (unimaginatively named Number 13), while the family of Asian elephants (the Hi-Ways) are adapting to the loss of two young members of the herd to a virus.
