    No plans for a zoo of any kind, in the Loch Lomond plans, just looks like it will be a centre parcs type resort.

    Update on 2018 births:

    We have welcomed an array of new babies including Valentine the Lorikeet chick, Penguin chicks, Baboon infants, Kangaroo twin joeys, a Red Panda cub, a quartet of Oryx calves and an adorable Zebra foal. But we have recently had a new arrival that is stealing the show within the cuteness stakes and that is a gorgeous Giraffe calf born to mum Lizzie and dad George.

    probably room for another rhino in either of the houses but the hippo enclosure was a tight fit when they had 3.

    Plus one of the young Rhino's has been / is going to released to a National Park in Africa.

    The male Hippo is quite protective of the female and has always been aggressive, so I doubt whilst he is there, they would consider bringing in another Hippo.

    I suspect they are teasing the departure, not an arrival, and that the box is the one being used to crate-train the rhinoceros.

    The crate is for female Black rhino Olmotti who excitingly is being transferred to Africa to be released into the wild.

    Olmoti is leaving for Dvur Kralove tomorrow (14th November). She and the other four Rhino's involved in the project will fly out to Rwanda next Summer
