The first ever recipe book for animals has been put together.

Experts at Chester Zoo spent years studying exactly what their animals should eat - and put all the info into a book.

The book contains 7,000 recipes and each animal has its own specific diet.

It's good news for the animals because new keepers will know exactly what to feed them.

Some of the meals are a bit easier to prepare than others. Giraffes live happily on tree branches but red pandas have to eat four meals a day that are expertly prepared.
