When animals got prezzies!
They all got early Christmas gifts, when the great man himself paid a visit to the 15-acre attraction on Wednesday 17th December, as part of its Animal Enrichment programme.
There was a wide variety of festive gifts for the animals, from rabbit for the leopards, mealworms for the meerkats.
The gibbons and parrots had nuts and seeds respectively.
Joyce Roberts, who is the manager of the zoo told That's Christmas: "Christmas is the season for giving and we wanted to make sure our residents at the zoo weren't forgotten, either!"
She went on to say: "The animals have given families who have visited the zoo a day out to remember and they definitely deserve their gifts!”
Drayton Manor Theme Park’s Magical Christmas event will be open from the 27th – 31st December and Europe’s only Thomas Land™ attraction will open on Saturday 14th February 2015 for a fun-filled February half term, closing on Sunday 22nd February.
