Made a snap decision to visit Hamerton this afternoon, after making the short drive to Linton, only to find that it was closed. Despite not getting there until 2pm, I managed to see almost everything, only no shows were the rock cavy, slow Loris, aardwolf and jaguarundi. Several species I've struggled with at various times were visible though, particularly in the run up to closing time. Highlight of the visit was finally seeing the Tayra properly on show, they are a great exhibit species. The Oncilla and rusty spotted cat enclosures were sadly not accessible today. Something that may or may not indicate something is that the Southern aardwolf enclosure (open topped one) contained 2 cheetah cubs. I hope this doesn't indicate the demise of the former inhabitants!
