We were so pleased that Norfolk & Norwich Rover Owners Club and the Norwich Classic Vehicle Club were able to join us at this years’ Zoo Do to celebrate our 50th birthday. These fantastic #vehicles took us back to 1968 when these #cars were new and Banham Zoo first became a zoo

It looks like it's the breeding season for our red breasted goose, It took a good keeper to spot this female goose hiding on a nest of six eggs. In the wild these geese often lay their eggs in nests close to birds of prey nests to drive predators away from their own eggs.

The European eagle owl is the largest owl with a wingspan of up to 2 metres.
They often inhabit rocky landscapes and are also found in river valleys, open forest and grasslands in countries such as Croatia.

Obviously today we are backing England and wish them good luck in the semi final! 🐱 🐱 🐱

Some people often ask us why some of our African black foot penguins look so scruffy at this time of year. This is because each year they go through a moult which can last up to 22 days. Unlike other birds penguins lose most of their feathers at once and in the wild they wouldn’t be able to fish, as without their feathers they would not be waterproof if they went out to sea. To ensure they don’t starve they would eat around 30% more of their own body weight beforehand so that they have plenty of reserves to cope with being unable to catch any food.

It's that time of year again where our Mongolian sheep have been sheared. We always save the fleeces for enrichment which is especially loved by our cats!

We recently received a donation of fire hose from Haverhill Fire station which the keepers have used to create enrichment. The fire hose cubes certainly piqued the interest of 'Malachi' our dominant male gelada
