      Has the new bull finally moved down from South Lakes yet?
    • chizlit
      Don't know the answer to this, there were 5 in this group when I last visited if that helps any.

      unfortunatly am unsure myself but will update on this after my next visit on friday 18th Dec
      will also hopefully have new photo's of the newly born Tapir (Ronnie)
      if there were five it may be that he has arrived but there is nothing on there web site.

      they aren't that up to date on the website tbh

      Visited 18th Dec and unfortunatly no new bull as arrived yet and won't be arriving until early in the new year.
      Also the Tapir baby (Ronnie and mom) are still off show.

      How much space to the girafes have?
    • EvilKittie
      its hard to picture maybe indoor 16ft long and about 8ft wide and giraffe high =) while outside maybe 1/4 acre maybe less not sure

      Thanks EvilKittie:) Thats not large at all! I haven't visited this place but it looks like its a keen developer and some good facilities but is also suffering from certain facilities.

      I'm assumeing the girafe house isn't lisited?:confused: If not I recommened that they try to provide them with a larger and better facilitys.

      IMO the indoors is just about ok, but the outdoors is too small, there are other places in the zoo where the giraffes could make a better display, so hopefully with new ideas happening at the zoo at a faster rate now maybe they will be moved.

      they can about double the size of the enclosure by extending it backwards its the EMPTY supply yard xD
    There are no comments to display.
