Unfinished monkey business

Online zoo gets up and running

Howletts Zoo opened the bars to its new Web site today -- three weeks after it had to postpone the launch because the animals had eaten the cables and trashed the Web cams. The site allows animal loving Net users to roam virtually around the animals' enclosures seeing at first hand how wild animals live in captivity. Six colour Web cams show a number of rare and endangered species including the world's largest captive gorilla colony. Other animal attractions include African elephants, Siberian tigers and bongos -- a species of antelope. ®
