Our Animals


Our zoo has a variety of animals, but we specialise in two particular areas - tigers and lemurs. Our keepers have their own specific sections, which allows them to get to know the personalities of the animals in their care very well. Why not explore this section and find out which of our animals are the headstrong type, which are the softies and which like to keep the keepers on their toes?
