I visited Cotswold Wildlife Park last week to spend the day as a zoo keeper, as a birthday present from my wife. Throughout the day, we visited various sections of the park to visit the animals. It started with feeding the donkeys, followed by a close up view of the rhinos. One of my favourite parts of the day was feeding the penguins, for which I had an audience. The monkey section was excellent, especially the lemurs, and it was great to be inside the nocturnal house as fruit bats flew close by. Feeding the meerkats and otters was also fun. I was surprised to discover the Brazilian Tapirs, who took the food from me, almost without stopping for breath. The day ended with me (slightly hesitantly) feeding the lions, before meeting the giraffes face to face.
Throughout the day, I found all of the staff to be very knowledgeable and friendly. I was also pleasantly surprised that my wife was also allowed to interact with the animals as well. This was without doubt, one of the best days I have ever had.
