Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio, America, is enormous! Home to more than 10,000 animals, it welcomes 2.4 million visitors per year!

Each day, the zoo’s vets deal with rare and endangered species – and with nearly 6,000 veterinary cases and more than 100 births each year, the medics never know what could be next! It could be a sick guinea fowl acting weirdly or a dramatic manatee rescue…

All in a day’s work!
