Happy Birthday to Lou!

Lou the kangaroo is in for a fruity feast today to celebrate his 12th birthday.

Keepers will be making a special visit to Dudley market’s fruit stall to buy the Western Grey a special treat for the occasion.

Team Leader, Jay Haywood, said: “We are going to head up to the town to get a nice big bunch of grapes for the birthday boy. I’m sure they’ll go down a treat!”

Lou lives in the paddock alongside the ungulates kitchen with his best pal, 13-year-old Harold.

Both Lou and Harold came to us from Chester Zoo in April 2006.
