How can polar or tropical animals live in ZOOs with completely different climate than they are accustomed to?

In: Biology

Many locations around the world actually experience extremes of temperature and weather that fit in with a temperate climate, for instance northern Siberia experienced a heat wave of 32C. So most animals are adapted to temperatures outside what you might expect. In addition small animals like lizards are provided with heat lamps and other features to make their areas more suitable alternatively polar bears are given pools to swim in to shed some excess heat.
