Get yourself down to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo this February half-term where families can discover chilling facts and bust some monster myths in our series of fascinating new talks.
Visitors can learn all about the Bactrian camels, and how their bodies have adapted to carry a “lunchbox” in their humps to face life in the Gobi desert. Find out how penguins live in very cold waters and how the behaviour of the Zoo’s pride of lions is influenced by the extreme heat of the African sun...
Our beautiful Butterfly House is one of the largest in the UK and home to more than 30 colourful species from around the world!
Happy Friday! Who's excited about the weekend?

Visitors to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo are able to come face to face with lynx, brown bears, 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.
