Hairy, scary Hallowe’en!

Hairy, scary Hallowe’en fun is well underway this half-term with Close Encounters of the Furred Kind.


CAPTION: DZG Presenter Langan Turner puts his Hallowe’en spell check to the test.

Right until Sunday, November 4 there will be Creepy Crawly Corner crafts, plus ghoulish games and ghost walks around 11th century Dudley Castle at the heart of the zoo.   In the Discovery Centre Presenters will weave spells to help young visitors make friends with spiders, snakes and a few hissssing cockroaches.  

Plus lots of other scary stuff about some of the more unusual creatures in our collection, including giant toads, blood-sucking leeches and rats with attitude.

Get close to some of the rarest, scariest animals in the world this Hallowe’en at DZG!
