This weekend I spent Saturday pretending to be a zookeeper and it was brilliant! For my birthday in February Jonny bought me a zookeeper experience. With lots of weddings and a series of very busy weekends it meant I only cashed in my gift recently! Definitely better late than never though!
I got to spend my Saturday doing all the usual zookeeper duties. There was a token ‘clean out the lemur hut’ section but the majority of the day was spent feeding the animals and getting to climb into their enclosures with them!
This basically made my life; I’m constantly the adult at the zoo trying to stroke the animals/encourage them out of their enclosures. So having permission to be in their space was great!
I loved every minute of it, and would love to do it all again. My favourite animals were the cheeky little brown lemurs and ring-tailed lemurs, they definitely had funny little personalities.
