Fur, Feathers and Scales

Birds

Saunter through our walkthrough aviary, hop around our bush walk or creep around our cold blooded corner.

Built with animal encounters in mind, Fur, Feathers & Scales is the perfect location to get close to some of the reptiles, birds and mammals at Marwell.

Walk-Through Aviary

Our walkthrough aviary is jam packed with a fantastic range of colourful and exotic birds – squawking, swooping and strutting.

It’s an exciting and immersive entrance to our new Fur, Feathers & Scales exhibit, as well as a valuable education resource for children - especially 4 to 7 year olds.

This aviary is larger than any other in the zoo by a considerable margin. One of its greatest assets is its spacious house, which keeps the birds safe, dry and warm through the winter – a guaranteed animal encounter whatever the time of year.

With its varied habitat it caters for all manner of nest building styles – an essential given the mix of birds!

Fur

Follow the path down from the aviary and you’ll find the “fur” section. A new and improved home for our red panda has now opened, and Mei Mei has been joined by a male red panda called Peter. Find out more.

Bush Walk

Saunter on down to the bush walk for a close up encounter with our Bennett’s wallabies before heading into the “scales” section at Cold Blooded Corner.

Cold-Blooded Corner

Here you’ll discover the venomous reticulate Gila monster and the Madagascan tree boa, both EEP species (European Ex-situ breeding Programme). If you love snakes this is definitely the place for you! Look out for our Dumeril's ground boa too.
