Zoo capitalising on Pokemon Go craze

A zoo in Alabama is trying to educate visitors about its animals by using a reference point that many of them may understand, Pokémon Go.

The Birmingham Zoo in Alabama has updated the signs that hang outside animal enclosures to give them a Pokémon Go theme. These break down the crucial stats of each animal as Pokémon Go does, including the type of animal it is, its weight and height, and even some of its abilities.

The re-themed signs certainly make some info more readily accessible and more interesting. It's unlikely that visitors will forget that the Double-Watted Cassowary's Ultra Kick is super effective and dangerous to humans.

The creator of the signs, Anna Turkett, highlighted them on her Tumblr blog, aptly titled Zookeeper Problems. "Decided to jump on the Pokémon Go hype train at the zoo! Hey, if you can’t beat ‘em," she wrote.
