DZG’s pygmy marmosets enjoyed a feast of crunchy locusts following a generous donations from Online Reptile Shop.
The locusts were part of complimentary deliveries from the live food company, which also contained fresh mealworms and crickets, after our enrichment committee contacted the online business for help.
Keeper Adam Wrench, said: “I’ve used this company before and through the enrichment committee I decided to contact them to see if they’d be willing to donate any spare live food to us.
“We were amazed that within days we had a delivery of 17 boxes of various live food and since then we’ve been received unexpected extra parcels.
“We’ve distributed everything for enrichment across all sections of the zoo and we had many grateful recipients!”
