Merry Christmas!

It’s Christmas!

We hope Santa stopped off at your house overnight – he certainly paid a visit to our 40-acre site as our exotic species woke to piles of goodies this morning, including our Brazilian tapirs who found their stocking bursting with tasty treats, plus our Asiatic lions and wild dogs who found wrapped enrichment gifts, doused in Christmas spices, which they soon got stuck into.

Although DZG is closed to the public today, it’s business as usual for our keeping staff who will be putting their own present unwrapping and Christmas dinner on hold to feed and care for our 1,600-strong animal collection – here they are posing for an ‘elfie with our Instagram Christmas elf, Dudley!

Merry Christmas from us all at DZG – we hope you have a fantastic day!
