We are the only zoo in the UK to house greater roadrunners. They live near the Avian Breeding Centre.
Beep beep! The greater roadrunner lives in dry scrubland areas of northern Mexico and southwestern USA.
They eat small animals, including insects, scorpions, rodents and reptiles.
Other than ACME rockets and persistent coyotes, the main threats to wild roadrunners are habitat loss and predation by domestic cats.
Although their numbers have declined in recent years in some areas, roadrunners are currently considered to be Least Concern and are doing well in the wild.
