    Bored or hungry? Lions at Wellington Zoo

    Wellington Zoo is small but has a good collection of animals to see and interact with, from lions to tigers to giraffes. There are also chimpanzees, lemurs, bears, meercats and of course, kiwis. But it's tricky seeing the kiwis, even in their new Nocturnal House, because it's a bit dark!

    Wellington zoo increasingly focuses on 'preserving and breeding endangered animals', which is why they house a very special resident, the famous kiwi. The birds live in a dark walk-through area and if you stick around long enough you will see them foraging for food and perhaps hear their shrill call (and jump a mile!). The Kiwi's literally roam free within their house and if you're lucky they may well waddle right past you. We were spellbound and watched them for nearly an hour. The staff arrange talks throughout the day about all the different animals, we caught up with the giraffe talk and as a 'big kid' got to feed the giraffe-brilliant!!
