Do elephants count sheep? ... and other important questions...

Snoring cats, peaceful pachyderms and orgasmic ostriches. This episode has it all!

We went to Dublin Zoo to chat to keeper Brendan Walsh about a study he carried out on the zoo's largest residents, one that gave him new and remarkable insights into their nocturnal lives.

An elephant-sized THANK YOU to the staff at Dublin Zoo for being so generous with their time and information. It was a wonderful visit.
