Pancakes for pigs!

Our seven little piglets are tucking into traditional Shrove Tuesday fare today, thanks to generous keeping staff who whipped up the pancakes as a special treat.

Senior keeper Lesley Lewis – pictured below with the micro piglets and their mum, Poppy, front right,  – said: “It’s the first time the piglets have tasted pancakes and they adored them, they really couldn’t eat them fast enough.

“They usually have a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables and cereals, so this really was a treat.”

Three-months-old Little Ernie, Hamm, Chuck, Brian, Wilba, Dolly and Jemima shared the pancakes with mum Poppy and dad Harley.
