Animals of the Ice Age at Howletts Wild Animal Park
Animals of the Ice Age opens at Howletts Wild Animal Park this Easter.
Howletts is launching a one-of-a-kind prehistoric creatures exhibit, ‘Animals of the Ice Age’. Stop and stare at the spectacular sabre-toothed cats, marvel at the mighty mammoth and be amazed by the sheer size of the giant sloth!
Bob O’Connor, Managing Director said: ‘Opening this Easter, this is one of the most exciting outdoor exhibitions in Kent, not to be missed. The prehistoric creatures are so realistic and are sure to capture the imagination of parents and children alike – it will be hard to believe you’re not back in the ice age.’
Visitors to the Animals of the Ice Age will be able to walk amongst these fantastic creatures and learn incredible facts posted on informative signage, which will tell the story of the animal kingdom as it was, over 2.6 million years ago. Expect to be taken by surprise as you keep discovering these amazing beasts along the trail keeping kids and parents on their toes and on the lookout.
Howletts is home to over 400 animals, including Kent’s only giant anteaters, the largest herd of African elephants in the UK and more gorillas, tigers, leopards and monkeys than any animal park in the county. As a conservation charity, all visits help to protect wildlife here in the UK, which then enables them to send animals back to the wild in conjunction with The Aspinall Foundation.
This story is all part of the #SomethingsHatching Easter campaign, where you can find out about other exciting new arrivals, openings and launches at top UK attractions!
