We are delighted to announce that we have purchased 50 acres of Rainforest this year, thats £5,000 that the visitors helped to raise for tropical Rainforest conservation!
Our Porcupines have given birth again (2/11/15) to two 'Porcupettes' (Thats what you call a baby Porcupine) this is the second time they have given birth to a pair of Porcupettes this year which brings the group size to 6. You can find them in the area next to the jumping pillow, they like to stay in the house (den) during the daylight hours as they are nocturnal. There is a window in the house so you can view them.
Other recent births!
The Crab -eating macaques have had two births recently, this has been a little bit of a surprize to us as the alpha male was vasectomised 3 years ago to keep the group to a manageable size. This means that a lower ranking male is the father, and although the alpha male would normally have all the rights to mating it seems there has been some sneaking around in the group! We are not entirely sure if the alpha male is aware of this; it could be that he thinks the youngsters are his! However we know otherwise because the operation he had 3 years ago makes it impossible for him to be the father!
