Eshottheugh Animal Park
There are over 50 different noises which meerkats use to communicate with each other in family groups of up to 50 individuals!
Parma wallabies communicate with each other and our keepers by wobbling their heads from side to side quickly!
Raccoons have super-sensitive hairs on their fingers which help them to manipulate objects really well and figure out what they are without even looking.
The musky odour in skunk spray is so pungent that it can be smelled from several miles away!
Fallow deer can run up to 30mph and jump up to 2m in height!
Red Fox are found on every continent except for Antarctica!
Llamas are used worldwide for protecting livestock as they have brilliant eyesight and warn off predators with their attacks!
Capybara are the largest rodent in the world and they are semi-aquatic which means they spend a lot of time in water, they even mate under-water!
Porcupines are not able to shoot their quills, they have to reverse into their attackers for the dangerous quills to stick in!
