Flamingo Land is delighted to announce the arrival of a Sumatran Tiger Cub on Friday 25th August at 6:01PM at Flamingo Land Resort Yorkshire.
Over in our South America section we have a large mixed species exhibit which includes Brazilian tapir, greater rhea, capybara, vicuna and some smaller residents that resemble a cross between a small deer and a rabbit. These small mammals with long legs and long ears are actually rodents and are called Patagonian mara. We currently have a group of 6 female adults, a young mara that is 6 months old and recently we have had some more babies born.
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!
