The animals came in two by two hoorah!


It wouldn’t be a zoo without animals, and we’ve taken delivery of the first residents.

Representing the Scots are our cows, the Highlands of Hobbledown, who were the first to arrive on site.

This rustic breed of cattle originated in the Scottish Highlands and the Outer Hebrides and is known for its long horns and long shaggy coat.

Birds of prey centre, Coda Falconry has also moved into its new aviaries and the birds are settling in well.

We are delighted to be working with this award winning falconry centre which is home to a beautiful array of raptors.

Among the next to join the family here at Hobbledown Heath will be our Ring Tailed Lemurs, recently named Lionel, Margaret and Makira by our followers in a social media competition.  Following close on their tail, and well in time for Christmas, our reindeer.  

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages @hobbledownheath to see who else will be joining the gang next.
