Meet ‘Spooks & Spiders’ this Halloween…. yikes!!

We’ve got some seriously spooky shenanigans going on at Monkey Haven this half term! Don’t miss our Spooks & Spiders spectacular, running every day from Saturday 19th October to Sunday 3rd November.

You’ll get the chance to meet a whole load of creepie crawlies in the brand new Reptile Lodge – and even get to handle some scary stick-insects and mad-eyed millipedes. Plus you can watch our new Keeper, Jordan, getting to grips with the giant snakes and terrifying tarantulas. He’s totally fearless and maybe just a bit crazy…

The brilliant Isle of Wight Bat Hospital will be flying by on Saturday 26th and Thursday 31st October.

We’ll also be celebrating some special birthdays in our usual style, by decorating the enclosures and hosting a little party with a sing song, healthy cake and wrapped up pressies for the birthday boy or girl. All birthday parties take place at 12 noon – please come and join us on the following dates:

Wednesday 23rd October: Lovely Lin the little Capuchin turns 2 today!
Monday 28th October: Bog the sweet Siamang is 17!
Wednesday 30th October: Bono the Mueller’s Gibbon reaches the ripe old age of 35.
Friday 1st November: Karoo the mischievous Meerkat is 6 today!

Over the Halloween weekend, on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th October, we’ll be getting into the spirit of things with Halloween themed crafts, face painting, badge making and glitter tattoos. The Keepers will be in fancy dress – and we’d love it if you wore your spookiest outfits too.

So boys and gouls… it’s going to be a scream! See you soon xx
