Flamingo Land is celebrating our adult Mongoose Lemurs' Birthdays. Geoffrey and Geraldine share the same birthday on April 10th and are both 19 years old. Geoffrey was born at Parc Zoologique et Botanique, Mulhouse, France and Geraldine was born at Banham Zoo, Norfolk, UK. The pair were first introduced to each other at Colchester Zoo in 2000. The young pair then moved to Edinburgh Zoo together in 2009 and joined us at Flamingo Land in 2014.
We would like to introduce to you Flamingo Land’s very own hand reared Flamingo Chick! He hatched on the 31st of October and is now 6 months old and has already started to develop his first pink feathers. Flamingo chicks start life almost white in colour before developing grey feathers and eventually becoming completely pink!
On Saturday we started our summer season, this means that the park is now open later and that we have even more activities for you to enjoy. We have moved our talk times around to help visitors see even more animals and attend more events.
