BST begins

Not all of DZG’s animals appreciated the start of British Summer Time today.

The clocks going forward one hour at 1am meant there was less time in bed for some, while others were delighted to see their favourite keepers earlier than usual!


While the ring-tailed lemur boys were up and raring to meet visitors to Lemur Wood keepers discovered nine grumpy Asiatic short-clawed otters who just didn’t want to leave their beds!


CAPTIONS: DZG’s ring-tailed lemurs are eager to see Keeper Steph Sawyer earlier than usual following the clock’s BST change while Trainee Keeper, Shaun Crompton had to entice grumpy otters out of their hut for breakfast.
