I once had an armadillo attempt to make a burrow in my palm - needless to say, it found my hand unsuitable for tunnelling, and I found that...
Thanks! Anybody else got any others?
I'm looking for a website or resource that will provide information on how animals are cared for in zoos - like care sheets etc. I'm sure...
In Durrel Wildlife Park, now renamed Jersey Zoo, I saw red squirrels roaming around the zoo during my visit.
My zoo would be somewhere in England, but more than that, I'm not sure. However, in my daydreams, I would love for my dream zoo to be located in a...
Really nice zoo. I love the lack of large amounts of charismatic megafauna, all too common in zoos, and the addition of the fossils.

While I was...

This doesn't count as a real exhibit, obviously, but it's an idea I had:
Having an area of woodland turned into an exhibit, building walkways...
I would recommend Durrel Wildlife Park, for its stunning exhibits (stand-out ones include the tamarins; lemur and orangutan exhibits are great too).
I agree. My previous reply was more of a knee-jerk reaction in defence of something that I've grown up loving. My apologies if it came off as rude.
Apologies if this comes across as rude - I assure you, I have no intentions of it being that way. But it seems to me as if some here don't have a...
Wait, what's been going on here?
