Binturong Experience for Two in Shropshire
A great Cocktail Making & Spirits Experience in Telford, Shropshire.
Get face to face with exotic animals at an award-winning conservation centre. Begin by meeting either the resident raccoon or the raccoon dogs. Don’t be fooled, although they bear a strong resemblance to raccoons with their interesting stripey markings and black eyes, they’re not related at all! Help dish out their favourite foods and get a chance to stroke them, before a cuddle with a brush tailed possum who’s always up for being spoiled. The star of the show is undoubtedly the binturong: a feline face, a body a bit like a bear’s, long black fur and a monkey-esque tail as long as its body, it’s a strange looking mammal but also incredibly smart, friendly and cute. Find out more about this vulnerable species and leave with photos to cherish.
