In 2011, a female named Evening was also generously donated by Howlett’s. She is named Evening, as she has very wild behaviour and is only seen after dark when the park is closed, seldom in the daytime. We had hoped they would form part of the breeding programme however whilst they do get along, they have never successfully bred.
While Popork is wary of strangers and will often hide, he knows our team well and responds to their calls with happy greetings of his own! He enjoys searching around his enclosure for food hidden by his keeper and lounging in the shade during the heat of the day. Popork often features on our behind the scenes tour and we love to take different scents with us for enrichment, his favourite toy is a chicken feather duster though!
