Animal lovers Gen and Nathan Leverton had a third wedding anniversary to cherish when they spent the day as DZG Keepers.
The couple from Leicester described the day as a fabulous experience and particularly enjoyed feeding our Sumatran tigers and cuddling the tapirs.
Gen, who was given the treat as a joint birthday and wedding anniversary present, said her husband’s internet research had paid off.
She said: “Nathan likes to look into things fully. He did a lot of research into zoo keeping experiences and found Dudley Zoo had some of the best reviews.
“And it was even more amazing than I could have hoped for.
“We had a lovely day and the Keepers were exceptional. They were all so knowledgeable and passionate about their specialist animals which was wonderful to see.”
Gen said it was a fantastic way to spend her wedding anniversary with Nathan and one they would remember for many years to come.
