Some of the Discovery Centre exhibits are currently closed, as we go through the process of relocating and expanding those exhibits elsewhere. Phase one of this process was the opening of the new Butterfly House, with more exciting developments to follow.
We thank you for your patience during this transitional phase and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Discover invertebrates abound, from the locusts, tarantulas, Geoffroy's marmosets, mata mata turtle, yellow foot tortoises, iguanas and saki monkeys.
From pumpkin parties and creepy crafts to the Jumbo Express ghost hunt, there's so much to enjoy at the Zoo this Halloween.
