Another new species has arrived at the Park, the first of a dozen or so expected during March. Some will stay off-exhibit until later in the year, as they are being moved here at the convenience of the other zoos - but some, like the Kirk's Dik-Dik will be on-show soon.
Dik-Dik are a species of tiny African Antelope. Our new female arrived from Chester Zoo last week and will be joined by a young male (along with some other animals) from the Cotswold Wildlife Park during March.
Our Dik-Dik will live in the newly renovated paddock next to the Pudu and near to the new tortoise house which is nearing completion, and will be open (and housing three species) also during March.
