    Hey,

    Im looking into creating a research project comparing the effects of enclosure design on Aye-Aye behaviour, between two UK zoos. Durrell Wildlife Trust and an unknown. The second should preferably be around Liverpool or the Kent area.

    If anyone has any pictures of enclosures or descriptions of lighting arrangements ext they can give me of any of the Aye-Aye enclosures i would be extremely grateful.

    Lucy

    There are very few zoos in the UK which currently hold Aye Aye. Bristol holds them in their Twilight World.

    Apart from Bristol, the only others in the UK are at Chester & London, which would meet your criteria better.
