Autumn Funday is here!

Where did the Summer go...?

Well it was a British Summer at it's best, and now Autumn has crept up on us with it's thicker coats and radiators. However it also brings our annual Autumn funday! As always there will be plenty of fun and activities around the zoo for you to enjoy, along with the opportunity to feed our meerkats and handle some reptiles.

As always, entry is £1.50 (free to all members and adopters) and we will have a variety of stalls, treats, and activities for you to enjoy. The South West Herpetological Society will be on site to showcase their collection and offer some hands on encounters, and there will be keeper talks throughout the day.

Please note that our opening hours will still be 10am-4pm, and that the special Funday pricing will last the whole day. However the activities and herpetological society will only be available during the timings detailed on the poster.
Thank you for all your amazing support this Summer and we look forward to seeing as many of you, your friends, and family as possible!

Triumph for the Titi monkeys!

Whilst you're here enjoying our fabulous Funday, don't forget to look for our newest arrival! Red titi monkey babies have a very strong bond with their fathers and dad, Joey, is doing a great job of helping to raise the youngster with mum, Cupreus.

The species are categorised as a New World primate, which describes monkeys that have originated from South and Central America.

Titi monkey couples mate for life and spend much of their time either huddled together, grooming each other, or with their tails intertwined.
