Now it may be pretty cold here in the UK, but the same can't be said for Australia at the moment.

People across the south of the country are soaking up the rays in temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius.

Its so hot in fact that zoo keepers are having to hose down giant tortoises and give ice blocks to seals, to keep the animals cool.
