Zoo news

2 Nile crocodiles have arrived

After nearly a 10-year absence,  Nile crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus) are back to La Palmyre Zoo! A male and a female from Pont-Scorff Zoo arrived at the reptile house last Wednesday and are hosted in the former basin of the spectacled caimans.

Dinner's ready!

Our cats are fed alternatively with chicken carcasses or beef meat (bones, ribs or steaks). Twice a week, food amount is reduced in order to prevent obesity problems and facilitate returns into the buildings each evening for security reasons (except for the lynxes who stay outside all year round and are fasted two days a week).

Success for the Gorilla Cup 2015!

Being involved alongside the Ebo Forest Research Project (Cameroon) since 2013, La Palmyre Zoo has again decided to support their annual football tournament whose main objective is to mobilize the local communities, and specially young people, around the conservation of wildlife and gorillas, during the school holiday period.
