Video Title:
Animal Analyst: Smithsonian Scientist Katharine Hope
Description:
An average day for most veterinarians requires them to be familiar with the wellbeing of household pets, like cats and dogs. But it's a different story for veterinarian Katharine Hope -- she treats about 2,000 animals from 400 different species. Katharine is a veterinarian at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, D.C. She and her colleagues care for a variety of animals, from small baby flamingos to adult Asian elephants, so there's no such thing as an average day.

Feeding the Animals at the Smithsonian's National Zoo
Description:
Mike Maslanka, head nutritionist at the Smithsonian's National Zoo, talks about what it takes to feed 2000 animals from 400 different species 365 days a year. Each one receives a diet specially designed by National Zoo nutritionists that not only meets their nutrient needs but also encourages them to employ their natural feeding behaviors. The Zoo's commissary is one of the world's largest zoo commissaries and is about half an acre in size. In all, 13 people make up the Zoos nutrition team. Two members of the team are certified nutritionists. Of all 220 zoo members of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, only 11 have nutritionists, and the National Zoo has two! But thats not the only thing that sets the Zoo apart. The National Zoo is also the only zoo that makes all of its own hay, which is grown at CRC.
