Animal Encounter Experience at Drusillas Park Get up close and personal to a choice of intriguing animals at Drusillas Park. You can choose to ‘Feed the Racoons’ where you will be introduced to a whole family and help the keeper with a few daily care routines, including their feed. Your next option is ‘Lemur Feeding’ where your help will be required to prepare the animals' lunch and you’ll meet three different species of Lemurs from the island of Madagascar.
The ‘Meerkat Experience’ involves learning about the diet of these sociable creatures before prepping their food and handing it out. If you are more of a Penguin fan then opt for ‘Penguin Feeding’. You’ll learn about the park’s two resident species of penguins, the Humboldt and Rockhopper - gain hands on experience preparing their fishy treats and making sure they're all fed. If you’re feeling slightly braver, you should go for the ‘Snuggle up to a Snake’ encounter.
Learn about these charming characters, how to handle them and then take one in your arms for a snuggle. The second option for the braver of you is the ‘Tickle a Tarantula’ experience, meet a Bird Eating Tarantula or a Red-kneed Tarantula, and take one in your hands for an exciting encounter.
Upon purchasing a gift experience from toxicfox.co.uk you will be sent a beautiful presentation pack in the post, this will detail the experience day purchased and how you can book in.
