We had to catch up some Fruit Bats for a Vet Exam and weight check. They weren’t too thrilled about the idea. Mike, from the Nocturnal House stopped by to help the Keepers. I helped by staying the hell out of the way. The video is a little grainy due to the low light in the Australasian Exhibit that time of the morning, (it was 7:30 a.m.) and it was still a bit dark as there are skylights above.  But this will give you some idea of how tough and sometimes physically demanding the Keeper’s jobs are.
