My wife finds the most interesting things to watch and this one is our latest favorite. She always has the remote and she always finds shows that are off the beaten path.

It’s on The Animal Planet channel and about the Chester Zoo,the most popular zoo in the UK. The zoo has over 21,000 animals and there are700 people who work there. Each episode covers several animals and is interspersed with quick comments from the keepers.

You can obviously see the passion of the workers for the animals. You also see the joy and sadness of their job. The zoo has many endangered species and one of the keys is the cycle of life and death, particularly birth(watch the one where the giraffe gives birth).

Cool Gus definitely gives this four paws up for entertainment, learning and overall a feel-good show.
