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.
We hope you enjoy your bank holiday Monday as much as Scott is enjoying his sand bath! #elephant
There's only one week to go until our amazing #dinosaur exhibit Zoorassic Park closes its doors.

The Zoo's Butterfly House is home to 39-year-old West African dwarf crocodiles Amara and Kojo, who recently became parents again, having not had any offspring for 18 years.
Keepers have carried out a huge operation as they encouraged thousands of animals to step onto the scales for the Zoo’s annual weigh-in.
Young Asian elephant calf, Sam, who will turn two years old in October, tipped the scales at an impressive 714kg, while the Hercules beetle – one of the world’s strongest insects and able to lift up to 850 times its own body weight – was recorded at 4.5g.
