Dont know how long they have had them,there enclosure looked  great but i agree with the diet,rubbish,all that was in the dish was cabbage and tomatoes,there was not a weed in site,large grass area that was eaten right down, and there was  only one dish of food and that was eaten in one go by the one tort,the food was in like a big stainless steel  dish and the tort was having problems getting the food from the sides.

It was a lovely warm day,Scott our downs syndrome son loved it,he loved the torts and the meerkats and there was such a funny parrot i will have to post the picture he kept putting his head in a coconut shell.

Lets just hope the dish of food was for visitors benefit and that they usually have a decent supply of roughage. I think kids (and adults) with Downs react so well to animals (and music), it should be a larger part of their curriculum. I worked with learning disabilities for 11 years and life for both them and us was so much enriched by these two additions :D
