As temperatures continue to rise, the animal populations at the country’s zoos are finding it tough to cool down. The Ramat Gan Safari staff came up with a novel way to keep the animals cool: popsicles.The custom-made popsicles came in three flavors: fruit, fish and blood.
Bears, tigers, monkeys, wolves, lemurs and penguins clamored for the yummy cool treats as the mercury rose today.
And just like humans have preferences, the animals are no less picky. The lemurs preferred sweet, fruit flavor ices while the tigers coveted the frozen red meat treats.
