A group of British and Irish Lions, including captain Sam Warburton, visit the zoo ahead of their final Test against Australia.

A number of players from the British and Irish Lions squad took time out from their Test preparations for a trip to the zoo.

Captain Sam Warburton, who will miss the clash against Australia in Sydney due to injury, was joined by Mike Phillips, Jonathan Sexton, Adam Jones, Jonathan Davies, Ian Evans and Tommy Bowe on the visit.

The players were photographed feeding elephants and getting up close to koala bears and baby alligators, according to the Daily Mail.

The Lions will head into the deciding Test against Australia without Brian O'Driscoll, who has been left out of the squad altogether.
