    The Moscow zoo will offer visitors the opportunity to measure their height by using the sizes of Siberian tigers, pink flamingos, polar bears, penguins and meerkats.

    To increase visitors’ attendance and interest, the Moscow zoo's authorities have come up with an attractive idea – designing the entrance wall with graffiti height meters in the form of animals.

     “Among the animals presented on the wall, the largest creatures will be an elephant and a giraffe, while the smallest will be a meerkat, the body length of which does not exceed 30 cm,” read the message posted on the official portal of the mayor and authorities.

    Next to each animal, visitors will be able to see the creature’s parameters and a ruler to measure human height.

    The new entertainment will allow locals and tourists to take photos and compare themselves with their favorite animals.

    The wall graffiti will be especially good fun for children.

    The total area of the drawing amounts to 100 square meters.

    On the walls of the Moscow zoo, graffiti has appeared. In mid-June, 2016, on the facade of one of the buildings situated next to the zoo, appeared an image of two, two-story tall flamingos.
