Rainforest renovation

Yesterday I was back working in the rainforest. No, not the rainforest of Costa Rica, but one much nearer to home – in our amazon rainforest exhibit right here in the vivarium. It was ready for a good strip down, clean, replanting, basically a full makeover! It was full days job, and a very hot, dirty and sweaty one I can tell you. With the support of Matt and Tom it all got finished and is now looking clean, fresh and better than ever. The animals are all thriving in there, and as with me, now they have new spray nozzles and suchlike in there they could all have a nice shower afterward too!

New additions of specimens have recently included some large and beautiful Blue-headed Anolis, which are stunning, and some further Trinidadian Leaf Frogs, which we raised ourselves behind the scenes. They all look incredible in the newly refurbished exhibit and so next time you visit why not take a look for them amongst the lush new rainforest in Manchester!
