'gators and porcupines and otters and more!

Thrigby Hall Wildlife Park

Mum and Dad came up for my birthday weekend and on the Saturday we went to Thrigby Hall Wildlife Park. None of us had ever been before and it turned out to be really good. It's not a huge zoo but they have some really interesting animals. My favourites would probably have to be the alligators and the porcupines, mostly because I'd never seen either of them in real life before but also because they were amazing. Everything was really good though. It's animals. Animals are good. We walked round almost all of it, stopped for lunch then went back to our favourites. It's a really good size for a day out, you get to spend a good amount of time with everything. A lot of the enclosures have really good high walkways and stuff so you get really good views of the animals. The tigers sit on a ledge right next to you which is incredible.



The video is pretty much unedited clips from the day and has some pretty good otter play and a 'gator blink and I also have a lot of photos for you to scroll through if you'd like :)

Animals being kept in zoo's can be a bit of a worry but this one seemed pretty good and knowing that the ticket prices go into various conservation projects is a good feeling. We also heard how the male snow leopard was found in the wild with his injured mum and they both would have died if they hadn't been brought into captivity which I know not everyone would agree with doing but I like that he still exists.
