  1. Open Google on your Android or IOS device. (Android 7.0 or higher/iPhone iOS11.0 or higher)

  2. Search for the first animal that pops into your head.

  3. Scroll down the search results until you see an animated box saying, “Meet a life-sized [the animal you searched for] up close”.

  4. The box will include the animated animal on the right. Look for the “view in 3D” button in the bottom left and click on it.

  5. A new tab will open, featuring the animal.

  6. Click on the “view in your space”-button.

  7. Your phone’s camera will open up. Twist the phone around a bit until you see a rectangle with a white border. The animal should appear shortly thereafter.

  8. Turn up the volume to experience the sound of the animal too!
