Exmoor Zoo - September 2020

Post by G-CVIX »

Hi all, here's a few snaps from a visit to Exmoor Zoo in September. We took a little road trip to replace our usual trip to Belgium, so there will be a few more from the trip to come (Bristol Zoo, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Aerospace Bristol, Cotswold Motor Museum, etc).

I hope you enjoy!

Lovely stuff. Saw some caracals earlier this year at Hoo Farm, Telford, absolutely gorgeous creatures.

Liking the agouti.

Thank you both kindly, much appreciated!

Cap - yes indeed, they are lovely animals! Exmoor is home to a fair few of the smaller cat types too, though they're quite illusive!

Thanks again. :)
