Pretty flamingo – at 45!

A Chilean flamingo is the oldest resident on DZG’s 40-acre site.

Curator, Matt Lewis, said: “She was certainly here during the mid 60s so that puts her at a very good age for this species.”

The flamingos are among the most photographed species at DZG as their enclosure is the first to greet visitors as they come on site.
