Type of place
Our red river hog family
Ava, Cameron, Pedro, Penny, Phoebe, Shane and Tommy are red river hogs. They have very different personalities, but have one important thing in common: they love food, especially monkey nuts. They'll even eat the shells!
Look out for them ripping apart their straw bales, blowing bubbles in their water trough, and snuggling up to sleep after lots of foraging.
Casson Pavilion building
Our Casson building is designed to look like elephants gathering around a watering hole. This 1960's brutalist architecture building has previously been used for elephants and rhinos, but today these animals live in more spacious and appropriate accommodation at our sister zoo, Whipsnade Zoo.
