Rain doesn't stop play for zoo's lionesses.
Assistant Curator Richard Brown said: "We rotate enrichment devices for the lions so that they don't get used to the same thing.
"Anything new in their enclosure not only intrigues and entertains them but because we also hang things from branches, stu sacks with used straw and hide bits of meat in things, it also encourages their natural hunting, tracking and foraging behaviour. And being able to splash around in the muddy puddles was an added bonus for them that day."
KEEPERS have added the nishing touches to a new PS5,000 quarantine bay adjacent to our recently-refurbished Reptile House.
Constructed in-house by sta, the new quarters are being tted with thermometers and heat lamps in readiness for receiving new stock, alongside providing a convalescence facility for sick reptiles.
e Reptile House underwent a PS15,000 facelift last year to include remodelling of enclosures, installing timber ooring and cladding to walls around the public-viewing corridors and the construction of a new glazed dual entrance.
