ZSL - An elephant birthday = giant celebrations


Lucha the Elephant
Mammoth celebrations at the Zoo
Asian elephant Lucha was treated to a birthday surprise of mammoth proportions at ZSL Whipsande Zoo last week, filled with her favourite veggie treats, banana and cucumber. The huge birthday cake was created by Great British Bake Off finalist Richard Burr, for Lucha and her herd to enjoy. Watch her devour her birthday treat here – she had a smashing time!

The cake isn't the only epic feature of construction at the Zoo, as the Great Brick Safari, an exhibit of life-like LEGO® brick sculptures, is open this half-term. At ZSL London Zoo Mini Keepers is also back by popular demand, where kids can get stuck-in and experience daily life as a zookeeper! Both experiences end on June 2, so this is your last chance to make the most of them this May half term.

Also, something fishy is going on at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. Take a peek below to see what we're carping on about.
