Echidna Experience

Echidna Experience

This amazing encounter will take you behind the scenes of our echidna exhibit with one of our knowledgeable keepers. You’ll get a chance to prep food for Bruce, one of the only echidnas in the UK, and then get to help out with feeding time! Our keepers have so much knowledge, feel free to ask any questions you may have about Bruce during your experience. You may even get to see our potoroo, Dumble, who shares the enclosure. 

The prices below include free zoo entry on the day of your booking.

To find out if an experience is available for a specific date, please call our Experiences Coordinator on 01803 697500 before completing your online booking.
