For those of you who ever wondered how animals drink water, zookeeper Elad Herskowitz has finally answered your questions with a unique underwater-perspective video.

In collaboration with the Zoological Center of Tel Aviv, also known as the Ramat Gan Safari, Herskowitz placed cameras inside the water troughs of a number of animals at the site.

In order of appearance, the cameras captured the unique ways that the Safari's giraffes, lions, oryx, lemurs, monkeys, tapirs, zebras and  rhinoceroses drank the good stuff.

The video was done as a way to promote Herskowitz's Go Fund Me campaign, in which he hopes to raise money to continue documenting life at the 860-acre safari, which he said is home to over 600 animals. "Unfortunately, the projects are slow because of lack of funds," he wrote in the campaign's description, saying that in the past, he has used special helicopters to capture the animals from an aerial perspective as well.
