Meet our cutest new resident - Larry the Thomson's gazelle!
Abandoned by his mother, Larry has been raised by Whipsnade keepers. He's only one of four Thomson's gazelles in the UK and nearly didn't make it, but like Lazarus (his namesake) he pulled through thanks to round the clock care. Our keepers even took little Larry home with them!
Visitors to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo are able to come face to face with lynx, brown bears, wolves, bison, reindeer, moose and wolverine - the very animals they could once have bumped into in Britain’s rural woodland.
Just when you thought your kids couldn't get any wilder, look what we've made - Wild Wild Whipsnade animal masks.
Transform your wild ones
Wild Wild Whipsnade takes you and your kids on a journey of discovery, immersing the whole family in the sights and sounds of awe-inspiring animals that once free roamed in this forgotten time.
To get your kids in the mood for a really wild day out, here's a selection of ready to print off and cut off colourful masks.
