It's not only humans whose lives have been deeply impacted by the global coronavirus pandemic. Major changes in human behavior affect animals, especially animals who are domesticated or in captivity. Just ask my dog, who has been getting 300% more belly rubs and has never been happier. But though house pets are getting more attention these days, zoo animals are getting much, much less. And some animals are handling this change a lot better than others.

Someone asked zookeepers of Reddit: "how are the animals acting differently now that there are no visitors to the zoo?" These 26 people who work at zoos share how the lack of visitors has affected the animals:

1.) From Frogchix08:

For a lot of our animals, having the ability to interact with guests is actually extremely important. Even for primates to be able to play with kids through the glass, they are missing out on a lot of enrichment. Guests keep a lot of the monkeys entertained. I watch our guests all day long show our marmosets and capuchins selfie cameras and they LOVE to see their reflection. Guests will also show videos on their phones to animals and the monkeys totally enjoy it.
