Downloading a video file from the Toledo Zoo web site:

The Toledo Zoo is proud to offer our fact pages' videos for free use by our web visitors. We have made each clip available in Windows Media Video format (wmv) and as Quicktime files (mov), which are two popular media formats used by Windows and Macintosh users. Both formats are offered as compressed files that will display at dimensions of 320 x 240 pixels, and each clip is 30 seconds in length. Once you have downloaded the file, it can be used in PowerPoint presentations and other multimedia applications for school projects or just for fun! All videos are branded with the Toledo Zoo logo in the lower left corner.
