Animal talk times

giraffe-feed232x187

Ever wanted to know what a lion uses its big teeth for? How fast a penguin can swim or how many muscles are in an elephant’s trunk? Then our daily animal talks will suit you down to the ground.

You can ask whatever you like and we’ll let you in on all the little secrets, you may even encounter a lion skull or an elephants tooth!

Each day we do different talks at different times, so double check when you are at the zoo (but just so you know, sometimes we need to change the times of our talks because of the weather or animal needs).

Which day are you coming to see us?

Friday  |  Saturday  |  Sunday
