    Looks like we visited a few days after @Cobra - mission to see the new bears accomplished :)
    Word to the wise - the time has come for gloves and hat at Whipsnade. Blimmin baltic yesterday!! No one has told the new bears this as they were merrily playing in the pool...

    Also - have you ever heard the sound of a mother hippo who has been a bit startled by a keeper appearing? I now have - and it is frankly terrifying!

    C&C Welcome - all taken with a Nikon D7000 and 70-300 lens.

    1. One new bear...

    Our car has this bingy alarm thing that goes off below a certain temp - we pulled into the Whipsnade car park and it immediately went off :D

    Thanks Chris - I wouldn't say that to Trev's face. He was fronting up to everyone in the paddock. Including the 4x his size poitou donkeys!

    I really wish that middle lioness had been standing in the same position as the other two but such is life.
