ZSL’s senior curator of invertebrates and fish, Paul Pearce-Kelly, tells you all about our revamped exhibit, Tiny Giants!
Shining a spotlight on the planet’s smallest superheroes - from underwater corals and the reef wildlife they support, to industrious leafcutter ants, spiders and beetles - Tiny Giants celebrates the largely unseen animals we rely on to survive.
Inside, visitors will find more than 160 species of incredible marine, freshwater and terrestrial invertebrates, including Critically Endangered partula tree snails - being reared as part of a vital breeding and reintroduction programme to save the species from extinction.
Tiny Giants: From Minibeasts to Coral Reefs is included in Zoo entry. Visitors aged 11+ must wear masks while exploring Tiny Giants, and visiting groups are limited to two households or up to six people in all indoor areas at the Zoo - as per Government guidelines.
