Caiman appeal update – caiman quarantine is ready!

Posted: 26 Apr 2019

Our quarantine facilities are ready to receive the caimans!  We are just running it empty for a while to ensure it all works and check environmental conditions are perfect. The caimans will stay in here for a few weeks, how long we can’t say at the moment, it will depend on how well they cope with a big area.  Quarantine is a lot bigger than what they have been used to but smaller than their final enclosure, so it will act as a half-way house to get them used to a larger space, so when they do move into their large enclosure it won’t be too much of a shock for them.  The keepers are excited about getting to know these fantastic animals and can’t wait for them to arrive.  As soon as we have a date we will let you know!

A huge thanks goes out to everyone who has already donated!

As a token of our appreciation, donors are invited to have their name displayed on the exhibit, choose names for the caimans, and get an invitation to a special opening event.
