Ferrets and their friendshipsβ€¦πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

Ferrets like to spend time together and being sociable is part of their natural instinct for bonding. πŸ™Œ

In the wild, Ferrets live in groups called 'business' or historically AKA 'busyness' where they rely on each other for companionship, protection and hunting. πŸ’«πŸ’š

These curious animals love to explore and play together, chasing each other around and engaging in playful activities. 🧢

If you'd like to meet one of our Ferrets, you can request them for your wildlife show when you book with Living Things! πŸ’¬

THE BURROWS just keeps growing, offering more space for rescued and rehomed animals and allows us to grow as a company. πŸͺ΅πŸ€Ž

The masters of mischief…MEERKATS! πŸͺ΅

But so cute, all at the same time!

Meerkats are known for their social behaviour. 🀎

Our lively Burrows meerkats love to steal the spotlight during our wildlife shows, showcasing their playful antics, by standing alert on people’s shoulders and backs.

..oh, they also LOVE CUDDLES & SCRATCHES too! 😍😍😍

FUN FACT:
For our first animal show we brought Steve (our first meerkat) to a school.
We were approached by a head teacher who asked if we could present to the children. The show was a huge success and that is how Living Things was born and the inspiration behind our logo! β€οΈπŸ˜„

Today is spa day for Big Bertha! πŸΈπŸ’šπŸšΏ

We've treated her to a steam facial by sprucing up her enclosure, making it even cosier than before. πŸ€©πŸŒΏπŸƒ

Big Bertha loves chilling in her water pool and she also adores the misty air that keeps her skin feeling fresh and hydrated. πŸ™ŒπŸ’«

We made sure that we upgraded her new home and designed it with her comfort in mind...πŸ’šπŸͺ΅

We even made sure she had lots of greenery around her...

..It's like she's living in her own little rainforest retreat (EVERYDAY!) 🀣🌿

Here are the reasons why....πŸ¦ŽπŸ’­

Defence:
It can be a defensive posture to make themselves appear larger and more intimidating to potential threats. πŸ’ͺ

Communication:
Puffing out their chin is a way for Bearded Dragons to communicate with each other and with humans. πŸ’¬

Territory:
It can also be a way for Bearded Dragons to establish dominance over their territory. βœ‹

Are you looking to GET UP CLOSE to one of our Bearded Dragons? πŸ‘‡

Discover your animal match! 🌿✨

Here are three animals that have completely different personalities…. but what we want to know is who matches yours the best? πŸ’š

First off, meet the Leopard Gecko. This adventurous animal loves to stay awake at night. Are you sleepy in the day and wide awake at night? You might have already found your animal with this curious gecko. 🦎

If the Leopard Gecko didn’t match your character, you can say hi to the White Tree Frog. 🐸

A calm β€˜stay at home’ animal. If you're all about chilling at home and keeping things relaxed, this frog might be your spirit animal.

Lastly, we want to introduce you to the Corn Snake. The caring and reserved friend that’s calm! 🐍

15/03/2024

Your fear of spiders will be gone...πŸ•·οΈ

Tarantulas might seem daunting at first glance, but once you get to know them, you will realise they're not as scary as they seem. πŸ’š

They're typically gentle and predictable creatures with minimal risk of harm. πŸ•·οΈπŸ€©

Handling a Tarantula with one of our animal handlers by your side will not only help you OVERCOME YOUR FEARS but will also provide you with a valuable bonding and educational experience. πŸ™ŒπŸ˜

Plus…

DID YOU KNOW?

They play an important role in controlling insect populations, making them valuable members of the ecosystem. πŸͺ³πŸ¦Ÿ πŸ¦—

Adventure is in their nature! πŸ’šπŸ”

Ferrets thrive on exploration, curiosity and the thrill of discovery. πŸ™Œ

They love to investigate new sights, smells and sounds. It's their way of learning and having fun! πŸ‘ƒπŸ‘€πŸ‘‚

They're quick learners and excellent problem-solvers, always finding new ways to explore and play. 🧠🐾

During our wildlife shows, our presenters will go into more detail about each of our animals and some facts will surprise you. πŸ™ŒπŸ“•

Protective mode: ON βœ…πŸ¦”

Lesser Tenrecs are known for their unique ability to curl into tight balls. This is a defence mechanism. ⚽

When they feel threatened or frightened, they purposely roll up into a spiky ball, presenting a barrier to potential predators. βœ‹

This behaviour helps protect their bodies underneath and keeps them safe from harms way. This really is natures protective instinct. 🀩

You could meet our very own Lesser Tenrec's at one of our WILDLIFE EXPERIENCES. πŸ’šπŸ¦”

From hunting insects to finding shelter, every climb is a vital part of their daily routine and survival strategy. πŸͺ°πŸœπŸ¦—

Capturing the moment one of our Meerkats decided to be nosey… πŸ“ΈπŸ€Ž

Meerkats have a curious nature and they love to explore everything around them, including your hair when they stand tall on your shoulder. πŸ”

It's their way of interacting and bonding with you, just like how they would with their own family members in the wild. πŸ™Œ

So, don't be surprised if you find one of our meerkats playing with your hair during a wildlife experience - it's all part of the fun. πŸ˜‰πŸ€£

DO YOU KNOW WHY TORTOISES NEED THEIR SHELLS? πŸ’πŸ’š

Let's explore this fascinating topic together! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

Tortoises rely on their shells for much more than just protection. Think of their shells as their own personal home and safe place where they can hide when danger lurks. 🏠

They also hibernate in their shells throughout the colder months in order to survive and have sufficient reserves of body fat to have a successful hibernation period. ❄️

Did you know, corn snakes are a popular household pet?! 🐍

They are considered one of the safest pet snakes to keep and this is because of their demeanour. πŸ™Œ

They usually live to around 10 years in the wild but can live to 23 years in captivity. 🀩

….and believe it or not, one of the oldest corn snakes in captivity is meant to have lived to 32 years and 3 months!! πŸ™Œ

….so that’s a real commitment if you’re thinking of having one as a pet. 😝

A Chinchilla's coat always tells a taleβ€¦πŸ“•πŸ“—πŸ“˜

From fluffy and healthy to patchy or puffed, it hints at their well-being. πŸ’š

Fluffy and smooth fur means a happy, healthy Chinchilla. 😁🩺

However patchy spots could signal health issues like infections or allergies. πŸ€’

If their fur is puffed up, it might mean they're feeling stressed or scared. 🫣

In contrast, when Chinchillas are happy and content with each other, their fur may show signs of mutual grooming, scent marking, playful interactions, and relaxed postures. πŸ’š

During our wildlife shows, our presenters will go into more detail about each of our animals and some facts may really surprise you!⁣ πŸ™Œ

Welcome to the Snake safari...🌿🐍

Let's go on an exciting journey through Southeastern United States, where the Corn Snakes originate from. 🌎

Corn Snakes live in forests, grasslands and also can be found on farms. 🌳🌾

..And when it comes to food, these Snakes are TOTAL FOODIES. 🍽️

They LOVE to eat small rodents because Snakes are natural predators and rodents are a tasty and nutritious meal for them. πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

This is all part of the natural circle of life and animal food chain behaviour. ⛓️

To keep the safari vibe going get your Wildlife Experience booked in today! πŸ‘‡πŸ
