This rather adorable little critter is an agouti, and while he might look small he proves that size isn't everything!!

In the wild, agoutis play a vital role in the survival of brazil nut trees - which bring millions of dollars into the remote areas of South America where they grow. Agoutis are the only animals that can open the thick husk to allow the brazil nut seeds to sprout.

Happy St. Paddy's Day!! Obviously Paddy was thrilled to find out there's an entire day dedicated just to him...
You say drainpipe, we say carrot dispenser!
Run Khari, Run!
Because sometimes looking at an animal's face is overrated...

Spring has sprung and our porcupines are back where they belong!! Now that winter is a distant memory and the weather is looking up, our tree porcupines were transported from their winter home back to their enclosure.
It's another beautiful day to be basking in the Spring sunshine!!
The sun is shining and we've been seeing some rather unusual activity in one of our trees as gorilla youngsters, Meisie and Moanda, have been exploring new heights!!
