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.
Crocodiles have the strongest bite of any animal in the world! See the smallest of its species at the zoo for yourself and say hello to our three baby African dwarf crocodiles and their parents.
