Meet The Skunks Experience
Zoo2U is proud to introduce a truely unique experience! Yes, yes, we know what you’re all thinking…Pepe le Pew!!! But these little cuties are more than just a smell (and to be honest they don’t really smell anyway!). For example, have you ever seen a skunk do a handstand? And did you know you can clicker train a skunk? This is why we have created an opportunity for you to come and meet real life skunks, learn more about them and even dispel some of the negativity surrounding these beautiful creatures!
The experience will take place at our Zoo2U Discovery Centre in Alsager (Cheshire) and will last for 30 minutes. These adorable little humbugs will be sure to win you over with their cute little faces and intelligent minds.
Price per person: £25

Your Meet The Skunks Experience - What to expect
Your skunk experience will be one to remember and to make the most of it we want to prepare you before you arrive! With that in mind, please see the notes below so you know what to expect and what to bring along:
Clothing: Wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty! Our little mischief makers like to investigate everything, and that means you too! They are also very fluffy and if they demand a cuddle you are likely to be covered in a bit of hair!
Arrival Time: Please aim to arrive no less than 15 minutes before the start of your experience.
Introduction: You will have a brief introduction about the experience itself, which will include a health and safety talk.
Meeting The Skunks: The keeper will begin by asking you to roll up your sleeves and get involved with creating some fun enrichment for the skunks. This will take around 10 minutes. Under the supervision of their keeper you will then be invited into the skunk enclosure where you will meet 3 wonderful little characters! Your enrichment will be given to the skunks and you will spend the rest of your time learning about these unique animals, watching them feed, forage and perform other natural behaviours. Our staff are always happy to talk about the animals so please take the opportunity to ask questions about these endearing animals.
Spectators: You are welcome to bring along a friend or relative to watch from the sidelines and take photos throughout the experience. Please note that we do not allow flash photography.
