February Half Term
A quick reminder on this very cold and icy Monday morning that we are open to the general public every day this week for February half term. Moving in to our 'busy' season sees us now stay open until 5pm, and sees a return of our usual schedule of talks. Check these out under the "Keeper Talks" tab below the header at the top of this page.
Keep in mind that the best time to see the animals, and especially with this colder weather, is around the keeper talk times. So if there is something in particular you are hoping to glimpse then plan you visit to the times listed.
One exception to this are our otters! They seem to love the colder weather, and are often seen out playing in the water and chasing each other around the banks. If the low temperatures last long enough for some thick ice on their ponds, then you may well get to see them chase each other through the ice too! One runs on top while the other swims underneath... amazing fun to watch, and usually ending with the one on top crashing through when they find a thin patch.
Hope to see some of you here over the coming days.
