Marwell Zoological Park, Hampshire, UK


Zebra and Ibex share a large open space together

Marwell Zoological Park is near Winchester, Hampshire in southern England. It is run by a Charitable Trust and is especially concerned with animal conservation and is involved with the protection of British species as part of the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. The park is laid out over a very large open area with great access to all of the animals.

The meerkats are always popular with small children.

Those are lovely pictures. I went to a zoo a few weeks ago but my pictures didn't turn out nearly as well.

Zebras are so attractive. I have never been to that zoo. I have been to Bristol and london zoos.

When I was about eight or nine we went to a zoo and an elephant took some fruit I offered from the palm of my hand.

Lovely photos, bazza. Why am I thinking it's frightfully odd to see zebras in England. Sorry, it's just my American ethnocentrism showing.

That rhino is no ham, Bazza! He knows he isn't the prettiest thing in the world, and, what is it going to get him?

I think I will email you a post from a ladys' blog on a wildlife park near me, it is full of pictures, not the park, the post, that is. No, I'll get the link and come back and leave it here.

utenzi: Ah, but you have some great photos on your blog. Thanks for stopping by. Call in again!

rob: Zebras are horses in fancy dress but they are very placid animals. I rate Bristol Zoo very highly.

gem: Oh, I suppose you have herds of zebra sweeping majestically over the hills of Pennsyvania, do you?!

"angeldust": You didn't see the dozens of shots I deleted! The joy of digital photography is that there is no real wastage.

jim: Thanks for the link; I had a look at it. I would have liked to get that close but there was a wide protective ditch around their field. It seems that zebra are very popular all over the place. Quite right too!

It might amuse you to know that my toddler who is just learning to talk had a blast trying to say the name of the animals in your photos. So far, he got zebra right. The rest, he kept calling "COW!" BwaHaHa! :p

irene: Your son is a beautiful little boy. I have a 20 month old grandson who does exactly the same as your son! He used to call any animal a cow but now, since he went to the zoo, recognizes lots of animals and adores the zebra.
My other grandsons, three year-old twins, (see my post 12th August 2006) love the meerkats.

serenity: Glad to oblige. See you at your place later on!

gem: Actually I was in Philadelphia for a couple of days many years ago. I think they had just re-exhibited the Liberty Bell in a new display. I'm sorry I didn't look you up then but it was before they invented the internet!

Jilly and I are hooked on a show called Meerkat Manor. Meerkats are our current favorite rodents, or weasels, or whatever they are.

deepak: Well we do have a lot of Indian imigrants here but this tiger is Engish because she was born here. I think the parents were Bengal tigers. She is a beautiful creature wherever she's from.

slaghammer: I don't know the show; I'm presuming it's a natural history program although it sounds like a kids show! When I saw them in the zoo I was suprised by how small they are. I think they are rodents.

Dad, the programme Slaghammer mentions is one of Jacob's favourites. Its on Discovery I think on Monday nights. We record it for him and he loves it. Its a bit like a soap opera with meercats as the stars - love it! Your pictures came out so nice - mine are all of the kids and none of the animals. Love Ruthie xxx
