Calgary Zoo brings animal facts, videos to those at home during coronavirus pandemic

Did you know penguins have knees? Or that hippos need their teeth cleaned?

Those are just some of the facts the Calgary Zoo is hoping to share — as much of the world spends time at home during the COVID-19 outbreak.
