Filmed over an eight-month period, The Zoo takes audiences behind the scenes of the world-renowned Bronx Zoo.

Located 10 miles from Times Square in Manhattan, the Bronx Zoo spans approximately 265 acres and features more than 6,000 animals and a dedicated staff of more than 500 people. Episodes will cover all sorts of cases and animals including: a silverback gorilla with glaucoma, two keeper-raised Malayan tiger cubs preparing for their introduction to their exhibit at Tiger Mountain, and the rescue of an orphaned snow leopard cub from a remote region in Pakistan.

The Zoo premieres Saturday, February 18 at 10/9c on Animal Planet.
