Animals at the Karachi zoo are being given ice slabs and showers to help them stay cool and hydrated as mercury rises in the city.

The authorities also spray water in the cages so that the animals don’t feel too hot and water is supplied via pipes. They have changed the diet of the animals to include glucose and multi-vitamins.

Here are some pictures of the different ways these animals are staying cool.
