Bennett’s Wallaby
(Bouncer)

Coati

Coatis are members of the raccoon family. They are gentle, easy going and incredibly noisy animals.  
Meerkat

Known as the Hobbledown guards because of the way they always stand to attention!  
Asian
Short-clawed Otter

Amazon Parrot

A cousin of the gumblegook, this green-feathered parrot has a bright yellow patch on its neck.
 
Llama
(Rumbalama)
Llamas move very gently on their toes and the hobblers think they look like they are dancing!  
Alpaca
(Grossis)
Because they sometimes spit and chew their food over and over again (really they do!) the Hobblers take great care looking after these funny looking creatures.  
Mara
(Splatjad)
With their strong hind legs the Mara are members of the rodent family and can move really fast.  
Rhea
(Nogook)
As one of the bird species, it may surprise you that the Rhea cannot fly. Instead, it runs helter skelter across the field as it cannot move in a straight line!  
Muntjac deer Native to south-east China and Taiwan, muntjac deer were introduced to parks in the UK in the early 20th century.  
Nilgai
(Mighty Bloo)
Predators such as tigers and lions will hunt Nilgai in the wild. Luckily they are fast and can travel at great speed.  
Pigs
