Plumpton Park Zoo is different from most zoos - it's intimate, and sweet, and home to just over 130 animals. It gives kids a more exclusive and personal look at the animals that we have on this planet.
Jimmie the Giraffe, Sis the Tiger, and Zoe the Zebra are all ready and waiting to say hello to them all! They are just 3 of the 44 diverse and unique species that call the zoo home, in their custom made natural habitats.
Do you know the difference between a mammal, amphibian and a reptile? If not, can you guess from the list of animals that feature at Plumpton Park Zoo?
Some of the mammals at the zoo include the arctic fox, llama, pot bellied pigs, deer, Bengal Tiger, American Bison, Pygmy Goats, and cougars. As for the reptiles? These include the alligator, tortoise, Burmese Python (don't be scared now)!, and even chameleons.
The Plumpton Park Zoo is home to only one type of amphibian - the Poison Dart Frog.
Now, can you work out what the difference is between all those creatures? No? Then you might have to head on over to the zoo to find out, because it's where you will learn all about these amazing animals, and their natural habitats!
If you are a bird lover, don't you worry because there are plenty of birds at the zoo, too. From the emu, ducks, haw, owls, ostrich, peacocks and even pheasant, these feathered creatures will all make your time at the zoo extra special!
Don’t forget to say hi to Jimmie, Sis and Zoe for us - they might even let you take a photo with them! Great one for the photo album!
