A hen do in London meant that I visited an old workplace of mine, ZSL London Zoo, for an afternoon. I should specify, it wasn’t my own hen do!
It was a superb afternoon (and hen do in general), and it was very nostalgic for me. Particularly when we went to the section where I had worked as a keeper.
As we only had the afternoon there, we didn’t manage to get around and see all the animals, but I would say that we did quite well and across quite a variety of taxon groups!
As you can imagine, one of my favourite enclosures was the Butterfly Tunnel. Though I do feel there should have been more moths of course. They did have the caterpillars, though no adults, of the Atlas Moth so that made up for it. I also really enjoyed seeing all the pupae, especially as there were some butterflies recently emerged.
I apologise if this blog post is quite short – I am still recovering the hen do! Great fun but utterly exhausting!
