Rockers are a hit!

DZG’s new animal rockers are proving a hit with our younger visitors.

The three colourful toys – Patch the Pony, Sammy the seal and Shamrock the sheep – were fitted opposite the bachelor group of gelada baboons by Outdoor Play People, based in Cornwall, in time for the school holidays and are being well used!

Zoo Manager, Matt Lewis, said: “We’ve had animal rockers here for a number of years, but these replace older, wooden ones that were literally worn out.

“These ones are made out of high-density polyethylene so should withstand years of playtime”
