Twycross Zoo 25/08/2008 - Pt. 2

A few more mammalian snaps from Twycross Zoo. Aardwolf - an insectivorous hyena, 200000 termites a night keeps it going. Bat-eared Fox - big ears to radiate heat away aswell as to hear prey (though this is also largely insectivorous, with termites again being favoured). Meerkat - I could watch these all day, always one sentinal whilst the others seem to be either manically searching for food or kicking back relaxing. Asian Short-clawed Otter - squeeky
