    A new collection is due to open in Stickney, Lincolnshire this weekend. Ark, Boston Wildlife Park is set on a former farm and currently houses 80 species including various reptiles, a (currently small) crocodile, Meerkats, a Lynx and some domestic farm species. Longer term plans include a Cheetah exhibit

    We visited yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed our visit. It's good to see places like giving rescued animals a better life. They have various reptiles and mammals such as lynx, fox, raccoons, gargoyle geckos, caiman and various others.

    The reptile talk was good fun, the owner is a real character and is great with the public.

    Our highlights were the long eared hedgehog that made an appearance after everyone else had left the park (persistence really is key) and meeting Yoda the Kinkajou.

    We'll definitely go back in the future, especially when they receive the corsac foxes :)
