Porcupine Training

For this week’s View from the Zoo we are going to tell you about a particular animal that we have to be very, very careful with! Our two Cape Porcupines have been going through a very special training regime over the past few weeks. Our male is 10 years old and he is called Grumpy! Whilst our female is 8 years old and called Mrs Prickles!

Becoming a Zoo Keeper

Here at Flamingo Land we are very proud of our zoo, and we hope you enjoy it just as much as we do. But who is responsible for how great the place looks? Our keepers of course!

Happy Hippo Birthday!

In our ungulates section of the zoo, it was time for celebration as one of our Common Hippopotamus’ (Hippopotamus amphibious), Ernie, turned 14 on the 4th of August! Ernie was born here at the zoo as his mother Betty came to Flamingo Land pregnant over a decade ago. He currently lives with his Auntie Godzilla who is 19 years old. This is still relatively young for hippos as they can live up to around 30-50 years!
