Humans to answer call of the wild
People with a desire to show off are being invited to take part in a display of human nature at London Zoo.

Volunteers will make up a flock of homo sapiens and spend four days on Bear Mountain at the zoo with only fig leaves to protect their modesty.

From Friday the humans will be cared for by the keepers and kept entertained with various forms of enrichment.

The Human Zoo will demonstrate the basic nature of man and examine the impact they have on the animal Kingdom.

A spokeswoman said it depended on the calibre of the applicants as to how many people they took on.

Anyone wanting to take part has until the end of Monday to apply and must explain in 50 words why they should be chosen.
