One thing we are really proud of here at DZP is the wealth of animal life outside the enclosures. The natural woodland setting is home to a huge variety of animals including a range of pretty impressive small mammals.
As our recent story of the Amazing Stoat Rescue demonstrated, these fierce little predators are a firm favourite with staff and visitors alike.
Whilst our video was impressive, we thought you'd appreciate this footage from BBC Wildlife. It shows a wider variety of stoat behaviour, all of which has been witnessed by staff and visitors here at DZP - including the very dramatic rabbit hunt (WARNING: It doesn't end well for the rabbit).
Next time you visit, keep an eye out for our stoats, particularly in the walk-through exhibit. You might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of mother nature in action.
