BCH - Rare Disease Day

Kookaburra at Zoo2U Rare Disease Open Day

Today we were once again visiting the Birmingham Children's Hospital. It was a very special Rare Disease Open Day put on for all of the children and their families. We at Zoo2U love this sort of event and take great pride in putting smiles on the children's faces.

We brought Skittles the Bearded Dragon, who suprised a few by just how spikey his back really is! We had Dougie the Royal Python working his charm. There was Woody the playful skunk, who shocked people by the lack of smell but rather how cute he is. Herbert the Horsfield Tortoise, who would not stop eating! The ever fluffy guinea pigs, Molly and Sally certainly received their fair share of cuddles too!

The party piece for this visit was the introduction of Milo the Eclectus Parrot and Kinta the Laughing Kookaburra. Neither of them disappointed with Milo making his presence known through the odd wolf whistle and a few polite "hello"'s. However Kinta stole the show with her laughter which never failed to make everyone else start laughing too!

Haslington Home Education Group Visit

Bumble The Owl at Haslington

We love teaching children at school so we relished the chance to pop around the corner to Haslington Village Hall (near Crewe, Cheshire) for a class of home learners. Usually we are given a topic to foucs on, which fits in with what the children are currently learning. For example, year one often learn about "Meerkat Mail" where we discuss classifcations and adaptations.

Today though, we had free reign as the children we met were from nursery up to year six. We took a range of animals including Anja the Greater Tenrec, Bumble the scops Owl and Winston the Skunk. The children learned lots of facts about the types of animal they are, their homes and what they eat. Some already knew that Anja's spikes are made of fur, that our snakes forked tongue helps him smell in two directions and even that the Scorpians had an exoskeleton!

Well done class!

Price Changes

Zoo2U Static
 

For 3 years we have frozen our prices to ensure we offer customers the best price for the exceptional services* offered.

Looking after a growing exotic animal collection requires a lot of time and specialised skills to ensure each animal has the right conditions, is cared for and generally has the best life Zoo2U can offer.

In 2018 we gained our Zoo Licence, which is a credit to the company, staff and also demonstrates the high bar placed on animal care, after all the Zoo Licence follows the same regulatory governance as the largest zoos in the UK!

However in the last 3 years prices of food, materials, utilities, products and wages have all risen consistently. As a result we can no longer absorb the increases if we are to provide the best level of animal care. Therefore we have had to increase prices across the range of services offered.

We hope you understand the reasons behind this and are rest assured that the services offered by Zoo2U will remain a fantastic learning experience with our wonderful animal team.
