Best of the Zoo


Favourite stories from Greenstone’s classic family The Zoo  Series 1 – 4 including Luka the chimpanzee who upsets his whole family and serval sisters Izazi and Mazimba give a potential mate a hard time.

The sealions move to a flash new pool and keepers try to round up the roaming tamarind monkeys. Weird and wonderful creepy crawlies starring weta, tarantulas chameleons and tuatara. Keepers deal with the bad habits of the Zoo’s orangutans and two very shy golden cats are introduced to each other. Meerkats, elephants and sealions test out new enrichment toys and Larry the Camel undergoes an emergency operation.
