After a long day’s work at the zoo, the animals all head back to their respective homes and families, making their way back to the work and navigating the city the following morning, just like mums and dads do! Some ride public transport, some take a jog, some hitch a ride and tough tiger revs his moped...each tackling the morning commute as grown-up people often do. But where is giraffe? Will he clock in on time?
