    Great pics mate! It's funny, I was just saying to my parents on Saturday that I haven't been to a zoo in years. I was talking about Twycross as well!

    I'll have to see if I can organise a family day out and use my 8 year old nephew as an excuse :D

    Those mice are called Degus. They pretty much act like big gerbils.
