LONDON, Aug. 26 (Xinhuanet) -- In London this weekend, zoo-goers will see the most unexpected animals -- human beings.

During the August Bank public holiday, the London Zoo welcomes some extra special exhibits as a flock of Homo sapiens gather on Bear Mountain, organizers of the event said in a news release.

Presented to the public with only "fig leaves" to protect their modesty, the humans will be an important feature, blending into zoo life as they are cared for by the zoo's experienced keepers and kept entertained in a variety of ways.

After each tiring day in the enclosure, the exhibits will be allowed home for the night. One of the participants, Simon Spiro, 19, from New Malden in southwest London, said "I am not even worried that it might be cold and rainy."

The exhibit will be displayed for four days, from Aug. 26 to Aug. 29, and aims to demonstrate the basic nature of man as an animal. Zoo organizers intend to examine the impact that Homo sapiens have on the rest of the animal kingdom.
