Default Jersey Zoo

I grew up reading Gerald Durrell's books, so on a recent visit to Jersey, the Zoo was high on my list of places to visit. And that turned out to be a very good decision. I'll just describe the amphibian collection here - quite small but perfectly displayed - the best public vivaria I have ever seen:


In addition to the species on display, a number of species are also being bred off-exhibit - a newly set up Amano-style aquarium in the entrance building contained a very young Typhlonectes natans, still with gill abscission scars. I hope they don't leave it there - it won't hang around in that open-top tank too long.
