Meet the Meerkats
We had been considering for some time about adding meerkats to the collection and after a lot of research and discussion with their former keeper, regarding care and management of the species, an opportunity arose due to a colleague retiring his private collection. We then had the arduous task of constructing a concrete base, and relocating the enclosure which has now been suitably extended and refurbished for our furry friends. We are delighted to say they have settled in so well and seem to be enjoying their new rockeries and hidey holes in the enclosure. However when visitors come to meet them they are very inquisitive and friendly, despite their cute and cuddly appearance they can deliver a nasty bite (as Carolyn found out).The gang of five consist of the Alpha male and female (parents) and three youngsters. We would like to invite you all to come along and see them and they are available for naming and sponsoring. This week has attracted a lot of media interest and we are hoping the diversification of the collection will increase our visitor numbers as we have many repeat customers.
