Dave’s birthday antics!

We love this video of our Carpathian lynx birthday boy, Dave…

Senior Keeper, Sarah Evans, grabbed her phone and started to film the six year-old rubbing himself all over the window of the enclosure’s pyramid viewing dome.

Sarah said: “Dave is usually the shyer one of the trio and tends to stay at the back of the enclosure, but this was so funny to watch him during the afternoon.

“He was lying over the point of the pyramid, with his paws wrapped right around it and was licking and rubbing his head all over the glass.

“I had to give the dome an extra clean the next morning so visitors were able to look through it clearly.”

If you’re visiting DZG this Bank Holiday Monday, make sure you stop off at the lynx enclosure and wish him a very happy birthday!
