Built in 2017, using recycled double glazing windows, donated by a local double glazing firm, this area houses a number of rarely seen animals including one of the worlds smallest primates. Here are just a few of the animals you can see in the nocturnal house


Asian Palm Civet

It is an arboreal species, well adapted for living in forests but will also live in areas near humans.

The common palm civet is mainly nocturnal and crepuscular, coming out at night, dawn, and dusk.



The common name kinkajou comes from a word that means honey bear, as this slender animal raids beehives for the golden liquid.

As you might have guessed, the kinkajou has quite a sweet tooth!


Grey Mouse Lemur

Like all lemurs, the grey mouse lemur is endemic to Madagascar.

Although it is the largest of the mouse lemurs, the grey mouse-lemur is still one of the smallest primates in the world.


Hedgehog Tenrec

The Hedgehog Tenrec may look like our native Hedgehog, but looks can be deceiving.

This animal is more closely related to the Elephant than the Hedgehog.

This is whats known as convergent evolution, were two very distinct and unrelated species, appear outwardly very similar and fill similar niches in the enviroment.
