Cave­men get top billing at Pol­ish zoo

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

WAR­SAW: This city’s zoo has opened a new dis­play where two vol­un­teers dressed as cave­men will spend time in a for­mer mon­key cage, to re­mind vis­i­tors that hu­mans are an­i­mals too

Dressed in an­i­mal skins, the 24-year-old man and 18-year-old woman will pass the time groom­ing each other, keep­ing a fire burn­ing, and watch­ing vis­i­tors who look in through the bars, the zoo’s deputy di­rec­tor, Ewa Zbor nikowska, said yes­ter­day.

“They are very calm and gen­tle. They don’t bite. And they’re keen to watch all the strangers pass­ing by their home,” she said.

“You can try to com­mu­ni­cate with them or even of­fer them food,” she added.

She said the project was “a play­ful at­tempt to in­spire peo­ple to think about the place of hu­mans in the uni­verse”. – Sapa-AFP
