Chester Zoo’s meerkat keeper Kirsten explains: “The more time I spend working with animals, the more it actually teaches me about humans.” The show’s aim is precisely that – to highlight the similarities, rather than the differences, between animals and humans. “Some of the animals here I’ve known longer than my wife,” is an astounding statement made by Andy, one of Chester Zoo’s keepers. We wonder whose favourite food he remembers. In The Guardian, fellow zookeeper Niall admits: “If you compare chimps to humans, give me chimps any day.”
