Zoos

03/15/2014 - In a cruel trick of evolution, humans can stand just three feet from a ferocious animal and still be perfectly safe.  This hour, Radiolab goes to the zoo to ask what's with our need to get close to "wildness"?  We poke at where we stand in this paradox -- starting with the Romans, and ending in the rain forest of Belize ... staring into the eyes of a wild jaguar.
