DUDLEY Zoo is inviting visitors to become Jungle Eggsplorers this Easter.

The Castle Hill attraction has a cracking variety of activities lined up for the school holidays, including an interactive trail around the 40-acre site to hunt out the zoo’s most interesting egg-laying animals, while searching for giant eggs along the way.

An extended daily talks programme, running from April 1 – 16, will shine the spotlight on a number of jungle animals in the zoo’s 1,600-strong collection, including chimpanzees, orangutans and tigers and an interactive room in the Discovery Centre will focus on how dinosaurs evolved into birds, with activities including a fossil dig and touch tables.

There will also be an opportunity to view a historical collection of real bird eggs from the zoo’s archives, including the eggs of a few extinct species.

DZC Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “We’ve got plenty planned for all the family, making a day out at Dudley Zoo and Castle an egg-cellent choice this Easter.”
