Zoo Detectives is back this Feb half-term

Zoo Detectives is back by popular demand this Feb half term – and it’s better than ever!

Thousands of youngsters and their mums and dads had a go at solving a mystery as they went around the Zoo last year.

This time they have the chance to solve a new puzzle between 16 February – 3 March.

Crickets have gone missing and visitors to the Zoo will be given the chance to solve clues as they follow a trail and work out where it can be found.  

Everyone who takes part will be given a case file that contains details of the trail and the location of an evidence vault.  

And all those who finish the trail and solve the mystery will have the chance to create their own Detective ID badge and have their photo taken with the Zoo trail suspects.  

James Kitto, head of commercial operations at Bristol Zoo Gardens, said: “Zoo Detectives really does give an extra dimension to visiting Bristol Zoo and will offer something children of all ages can enjoy.”  

Zoo Detectives is just the start - the Zoo is full of more things to discover.  

Visitors can venture into Twilight World and see if they can find some of the amazing nocturnal creatures that live there, including two-toed sloths, slow loris and naked mole rats.  

It is just one of the attractions at the Zoo that people can enjoy even if it is raining. In fact 80 per cent of the Zoo’s animals can be seen from an undercover area, so visitors will still have a great day out whatever the weather.  

And no-one should leave without going to see Biggie. The giant tortoise who has lived at the Zoo for 43 years – longer than any other animal.  

Zoo Detectives is sponsored by HSH Motor Group.
