Exotic Zoo


A huge thank you to Exotic Zoo who visited Lightmoor today, we're not quite sure who enjoyed it the most, the children or adults but everyone was very well behaved :) Did you attend and take photos? If so, why not share them below and let us know which was your favourite animal?

How fast has February half term come around?!

We can’t wait for you all to pay us a visit over the next week…the beautiful creatures at Exotic Zoo are pretty excited too!

See you all soon 👋 ☺️

We had the best time visiting yesterday for my sons zoo keeper experience. Emily was brilliant and very knowledgeable about all the animals we interacted with. All of the animals are really well looked after and Emily explained how each is cared for and fed. We were the first guests to feed the capybaras and they did really well. Cannot recommend this experience highly enough!!

We are setting up a few days for people to come in and give us a hand.

Exotic Zoo to join UK in country wide initiative, planting trees for the Queens Platinum Jubilee.

But not just one or two…. But 3000!!!

We hope this will bump up the totally of tress planted for this special occasion… but the benefits will be so much more wide reaching!

This planting spree on our Telford Town Park zoo site will be creating habitats for and supporting the British wildlife. We hope to develop a British wildlife nature walk following this project.

We have so many things to plant and need it all in the ground so quick we are after people to help us do some planting!
We have lots of people who want to help but can’t always help on the animal care side… well maybe this could be for you?
Please get in touch if you can help.

Team Exotic Zoo 💚


And the winners are…. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Interesting day going on 🥸


What could be going on today 🥸 time for an adventure maybe?


We just wanted to send out a message to all our followers and fans of Exotic Zoo🗞💚.

The last couple of years has of course been so hard for us, just like it has for so many others as we have battled to survive the pandemic 😷. In addition to that we were in the middle of relocating to Telford Town Park! 🛠🪚📦 However, through the hard work of so many people, the dedication of staff, management and volunteers, the support of YOU! 🤩and a bit of luck here and there we managed to make it though! 🍀💪🏼

After all of that we found ourselves in a financial situation that will take us many many years to rectify 😞. But we had the belief in the zoo that this would be an investment worth making, not just for the survival of the zoo but for the community and our visitors who we serve. 🥰🙌🏼

This situation has been further compounded by the huge rise in all our costs, not to mention electricity that we use large amounts of to keep our resident animals healthy, happy and warm! 💡⚡️🔌

We pride ourselves on being a community zoo with our focus on being accessible to as many people as possible and being a low cost day out is one of the big ones! Even with moving to our new bigger home we have kept our prices at our super low levels and people always appreciate it and comment on it! At only £5/6 we think it’s really good value for money too. ☺️

But in the light of the current situation we have decided we have to slightly put up our prices by just £1 (but we have kept our concession price the same to help the people who usually fall into these brackets) 🤗

From the 1st April our entry will be slightly different:
Adults £7
Children £6
Concessions £5
Under 2’s FREE

We hope you think this is still great value for money, especially with the new additions we are making this year! 👀 So watch this space! We can’t wait for you to see it all 🥳
