Venezuela is no stranger to crisis. In recent years, the South American country has been on the brink of economic collapse.
A drastic fall in oil prices, which provides almost all of Venezuela's foreign income, has been followed by a severe recession and widespread food and medicine shortages.
For Venezuelans, the scarcity has led to choosing between waiting in hours-long lines for basic food supplies or succumbing to sky-high prices on the black market.
That scarcity has now spread to Venezuela's zoos, where food shortages have left some animals emaciated or even dying.
