The zoo and gardens are displayed in a whole new light during Sunset Specials; a rare opportunity to see lions, penguins and meerkats under the glimmer of twilight. Other inhabitants include monkeys, pygmy hippos and Jasmina the red panda, while 12 animatronic dinosaurs can be sized up in the new DinoZoo 2 exhibition.
An Amazing Animal display will be hosted throughout the evening, and children will have the chance to get up close and personal with smaller creatures and creepy crawlies. Talks will help guests swat up on really wild facts, while there will also be face painting, live music and special guest appearances from mascot Larry the Lemur.
