German zoo's water bucket camera offers glimpse at how animals drink

COLOGNE, Germany -- A zoo in Germany is offering a different perspective on the importance of water conservation.

The Kolner Zoo in Cologne placed a camera at the bottom of a water bucket to reveal how different animals drink.

A host of animals are featured, including elephants, and a tiger who swatted at the water instead of drinking it.

The video begins with a quote from Leonardo da Vinci that states "water is the driving force of all nature."

The footage was filmed by attaching a camera to the bottom of a funnel and filling it with water, the zoo said.

It was made to draw attention the importance of water preservation and some of the water saving technology the zoo uses.
