    Although Robin Hill is still running as a theme/country park there used to be animals there until the late 1980's .
    As I remember the enclosures were very much of their time but I do remember they had several species.
    Servals,Eagle owls,Racoons,coati mundi,raven,dingoes,coyotes,ostrich,wallabies ,olive & hamadrayas baboons,squirrel monkeys,rhesus,crab eating and pig tailed macaques. There were also a reptile house and various domestic animals.
    Does anybody else remember what animals were on view and what happened to them when it closed?
