Gina

Gina is by far the biggest celebrity at the zoo with visitors who have been coming to see her for over 20 years. Some visitors who have visited Gina as children are now bringing children of their own to see her. Now at 23 years old, our girl has started to slow down but is spoiled more than ever. A brand new pond has been dug out for her, as one of her favourite things in the hot weather is her water bath. Gina’s favourite foods are salmon, grapes, and ice-cream.

The American black bear is the smallest bear in North America. Being omnivorous, the black bear has a large diet both in variety and abundance during the warmer months. Most of a bears diet consists of vegetation, fruits, nuts, insects, and fish. During the winter, black bears typically hibernate for 3-5 months where their internal body temperature is lower and their heart rate slows from 40-50 beats/minute to 8 beats/minute. During this time the bears do not eat or drink. A bear’s strongest sense is smell, being seven times greater than a dog.

  • We wish you and your loved ones a Very Merry Christmas!! From our Pride to yours may you find Peace and Joy today as you share in good cheer. Christmas here today - plenty of good favourites and Christmas dinners for all the animal gang!! Thank you to all whom have donated and supported our animal family this 2018 year with spoiling that they much enjoy. Lions―the very thought of this animal brings images of its regal pose and flowing mane to mind. A lion is rightfully known as the 'king of animals'. Its majestic look exhibits strengths, and a roar from him is enough to send shivers down one's spine. Lions usually symbolize strength, leadership, fear, royalty, pride, nobility, majesty, etc. For some, it also represents focus, strength, determination, a gallant warrior, etc. The lion has found mention in various religions, mythological stories, and literature in various cultures throughout the world.
