Animals enjoy a day out in Dubai Mall during Covid-19 lockdown
Dubai mall has been closed to humans for some time now due to the Covid-19 lockdown but they had a surprise in store for their fans. Dubai Aquarium let the animals run out and about exploring the empty malls.
A parrot, hedgehog and iguana went out for a stroll in areas usually occupied by humans including Fashion Avenue, the Dubai Aquarium underwater tunnel, the famous dinosaur skeleton room and Kidzania.
However, the one-minute teaser was a little too short for many fans who wanted to see more footage of the animals around the mall.
