  • Bactrian Camels (Humpledink)

    Two humped camel that can grow up to 12ft!
  • Birds of Prey

    Hobbledown is now home to 17 Birds of Prey including Eagles, Hawks, Owls and Falcons. Flying demonstrations, informative meet and greets and experience days will be on offer throughout the year. 
  • Meerkat (Horizog)

    Known as the Hobbledown guards because of the way they always stand to attention!
  • Llama (Rumbalama)

    Llamas move very gently on their toes and the hobblers think they look like they are dancing!
  • Black tailed prairie dog (Digger)

    They are called dogs because of their incredible bark. They have very sharp teeth and claws.
  • Bennett’s Wallaby (Bouncer)

    Springy animals all the way from Tasmania that click and chatter to communicate!
  • Asian Short-clawed Otter (Whiskat)

    With cat-like whiskers these smooth animals love to swim and hunt for crabs.
  • African Pygmy Goat (Bobilly)

    Bearded goat with excellent climbing skills.
  • Coati (Bandillo)

    Coatis are members of the raccoon family. They are gentle, easy going and incredibly noisy animals.
  • 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.
  • Yellow-Naped Amazon Parrot (Gibblegook)

    A cousin of the gumblegook, this green-feathered parrot has a bright yellow patch on its neck.
  • Giant Flemish Rabbit (Bomjad)

    Cottontail rabbit. Always in a hurry.
  • Peafowl (Pimpertail)

    Emerald-crested peacock with a glorious fan of fancy feathers.
  • Sheep (Grimwoolly)

    Woolly-haired sheep that loves lazy, grazing days and field racing.
  • Chicken (Picker)

    Feathered bird that struts around pecking at seeds and corn. Sometimes does the funky chicken dance!
  • 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 (Snufflers)

    Squiggly-tailed pig that is very fond of mud and apple.

Keeper for the day experience – FANTASTIC!!

The title says it all … my 10yr and 8yr children both did the keeper for the day experience and loved it. I can not praise Angela, Miles and Jamie enough for their interaction with my two … funny, relaxed, friendly, informative … the list could go on! T and L prepared food, fed, stroked, held, mucked out creatures from the blobby frogs to the huge camels and assisted in some of the keeper talks to the public. We all learnt a lot. V reasonably priced esp as it includes entry for the child and an adult to Hobbledown for the day. Strongly recommend 🙂
