Zoo Trip #52: Marwell Wildlife (Thurs 27 Aug 2015)

This was the last day of my year's membership at Marwell Wildlife so I decided get one last visit squeezed in. There was a plan to meet up with another blipper, Miranda1008, in Winchester but traffic related events conspired to prevent me from reaching the rendezvous in time, sorry Miranda.

I toyed with the idea of blipping Milla, one of their Amur tigers, devouring a rabbit, but decided that for anyone who, like me, is fond of rabbits, the whole scene was rather too gory. The complete event took about fifteen minutes and if you really want to see it, there is a link to the entire sequence below. The Extra, taken a little earlier, shows either Milla or Bagai patrolling the grounds, waiting for the zoo keepers to show up with their lunch.

Although I have blipped otters before, I have never featured Marwell's own small-clawed Asian otters, so instead here is one of them.
