Carus has been keeping a close eye on the new developments in Rocky’s pool, and is loving all the attention from the visitors. He was also treated to conger eel which as predicted was swallowed in one go.
Mika and Chaff have been fed this week by our younger visitors this week. Mika was a little confused at not having to do any training for her fish, and Chaff doesn’t really care who feeds him as long as the fish keps coming.
Thai has got a new pet this week, in the shape of a toad. Thai carefully put the toad in her nest box to keep warm, but the toad kept escaping. So Thai had to keep putting the toad back. Thai and Bamboo both also had a hay party this week, and the Animal Care Team came in one morning to find that the hay had been thrown all over the place.
The goats have taken a dislike to the ponies and Elvis has started to stand on his back legs, and rear up against the ponies.
After breaking out either in the mornings or at night, the ponies waited until the Animal Care Team were doing the Convalescence feed at 2pm on Thursday and then decided to break out. What the ponies should have realised was that the Animal Care Team were watching them and the site team were mowing the grass next to the fence they kicked out. So their escape plan was follied, and they were quickly returned to the gat field.
Reef, the cat, has been out and about in the morning, but disappearing as soon as people start arriving on site. He has also been chasing birds this week.
