Cuddle a Coati

(Suitable for ages 6+)

Hobbledown’s Animal Experiences have just got a whole lot more exotic.

You can now Cuddle a Coati as part of our Animal Experience packages.

These are in addition to our Zookeeper for the Day and Meerkat Encounters that are already available.

The new experiences allow you to get hands on with the Coati  and feed them tasty snacks whilst learning all about them from one of Hobbledown’s knowledgeable animal keepers.

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