And sometimes even vocalize," said Beth Schaefer, Director of Animal Programs at the Los Angeles Zoo.

Zoo staff is also taking preventative measures with animals that could possibly be susceptible to COVID-19, such as great apes.
"Because they're so closely related to us, we're not interacting with them closer than 6 feet," said Schaefer. "So we have implemented basically the same social distancing that we do with humans."
