Get hands on during your day at the zoo and take a personalised souvenir home with you!

Whether you’d like an “elep-hand-t“, “red p-hand-a” or a “chimp-hand-zee” we’ve got you covered!  Choose from your favourite animals and our artists will turn your own handprints into the perfect family memento.

Our team can make your unique artwork in just a few minutes – with a little ‘helping hand’ from you!

Prices are from £6 per Handimal.  Mounts, frames and family portraits are available as extras. Handimals™ is open everyday – depending on the weather.
