The premise upon which the Virry app is based is simple but unique – allow children to learn about animals and the natural environment by interacting and observing real, live animals. By choosing to provide videos of the animals and live streams, rather than animated versions, the developers of the app have elevated their idea from something that would have been good and entertaining to a much deeper educational experience. The level of engagement that children experience in using this app is great, and allows them to think and question in new ways.

They dig holes. And they love that.
They dig for delicious worms and bugs. And they’re big on that. After nothing is left to dig they just dig a bit of a trench. And guess what, they love that too! Dig this video:
Sunrise at Al-Ain Zoo… The meerkats are already up, but breakfast isn’t the first thing on their minds. After a cool night all 6 mob members crowd into the sunniest corner and bathe in the warming rays of the sun.
What a serene and sociable way to start the day!
Dozing lions seem so lazy but things can change in an instant. Lions can run at almost 80 km/h over short distances! Imagine that! That’s the sort of speed a car might go on big roads. Watch the sleepy lion suddenly turn into a 170 kilo bundle of power!
Lions in the wild are only active for about 4 hours a day. In a zoo it can be even less!
But don’t be fooled; lions can switch from soft kitty to powerful predator in a moment… Stay tuned for the next post!
