The theatre at the bottom of the zoo area used by the African acrobats is to be replaced by a Lorikeet walk-through and a second feeding platform for the Rothschild's Giraffes. I visited on both Tuesday and Thursday this half-term week, and the place was absolutely heaving. Having heard the Red Pandas identified (by an adult) as "little squirrel things" in January, it was the turn of the Capybaras to be "squirrels" on Tuesday. I suppose at least they were identified as a rodent. On the other hand, a few weeks ago a little girl of no more than about five correctly identified a Scarlet Macaw - "you're talking my language Reggie."
