Adders waking up

As winter comes to an end Wildwood is starting to see the first proof of the arrival of spring amongst those animals that have slept through the cold weather.

Wildwoods adders are beginning to wake up from their long hibernation and are being hand fed by the keepers in a Wildwoods reptile room.

The lizards, frogs and pond tortoises are expected to be waking up soon too as the weather improves.

"It is always exciting to see them waking up", commented Ali Bennett a keeper at Wildwood "We are always concerned that some of them might not survive their hibernation and getting them to eat their first meal is always a challenge".

Visitors to the park will start to see them in their enclosures as the weather gets warmer.

Hi and welcome to Wildwood's blog. Spring is finally making an appearance, buds are coming out on the trees and the animals in the park are enjoying the weak sunshine.
The park is slowly drying out from the wet winter we've had, but wellies are still a must!
