      I suppose that this exhibit is large, but extremely basic in conception. It's interesting that at the back there is a large brick wall (leading into the night quarters), which appears to be quite common throughout the zoo. Walls and fencing everywhere at this wildlife park, but I wish the relatively new owners success in the future.

      It looks alot better in the Summer with the Exotic trees and everything Was in full when i saw it in Summer 07. Very good enclosure

      I just think it's a bit too small.
    • Mike11
      If it was extended into the woodland it would be very good.

      I agree with Riziki-fair enough enclosure, but could do with a bit wider, and maybe a pool? Doesn't seem seem like the worst exibit though :)

      There is a pool the picture hasnt covered it its right down by the low fence and its a deacent size.
    • Jacobea
      That's good :D

      Apparently sovereign never uses the pool (although when they put fish in it a few years back, they were all gone within a couple of days!)
    • Mike11
      That would be good see Jaguars fishing very good enrichment too.:)
    • redpanda
      I agree, very interesting thing to see. Apparently in the wild, they tap the water with their tails in immitation of a worm. When a fish comes along, the jaguar will then catch it.
