    Animals in Italy’s Bioparco Zoo are treated with icicles and frozen fruit to help them during the hot days.

    "We always try to give fruits and seasonal products, to ensure they get the nutrients. We chose the coolest way possible. In this case we gave frozen fruit," a worker from the Italian zoo said.

    The recent summer has become one of the hottest in Europe, with temperatures nearing 40 degrees Celsius.
