Calling all eggs-plorers! Join us this Easter for a trail like no other. Will you be able to find our giant flamingo egg? Uncover the hidden world of seahorse eggs? And discover how a butterfly hatches?

We have hidden six giant animal eggs around the zoo… but they might not be the animals you would expect! Collect your map and follow our Really Wild Egg Trail to learn more about the incredible animals that start their lives in an egg!

Plus, there’s a free Nat Geo Kids magazine for everyone that completes the trail.*

The Easter Bunny’s got nothing on us!


The Really Wild Egg Trail is included with zoo entry. Members go free.
