zookeepers feeding a snake at the lincoln park zoo

Image of a dozen zookeepers feeding a snake with a syringe-like instrument. The snake, perhaps a python or boa constrictor, is laid out on a makeshift table elongated with a plank and sawhorse, at the Lincoln Park Zoo in the Lincoln Park community area of Chicago, Illinois. Cages are visible in the background.
