Miami zoo animals moved to specially made shelter

- At Miami Metro Zoo, they take every precaution to protect the animals.

It's too stressful to move them so they house them in special shelters built especially for situations like this.

You may remember in Hurricane Andrew in 1992. They actually housed the flamingos in a bathroom to protect them, and that became one of the many iconic pictures coming out of hurricane andrew.
