The free animal tour was led by a team of comical intrepid explorers.
An Aberdeen spokeswoman said: “Aberdeen shoppers took a walk on the wild side today, as Union Square welcomed two replica mountain gorillas and a giant tortoise named Zelva for its half-term Wild Things event.
“The life-sized creatures grazed around the centre, as families got to learn more about their endangered habitat from a comic intrepid explorer. Lucky shoppers also got the chance to feed Zelva and marvel at her beautiful shell before picking up free Jungle-themed books via the Union Square PLUS App.”
