Feeding time for the lions at Flamingo Land.

View from the Zoo: Replicating a lion’s natural behaviour

At Flamingo Land we have a pride of nine African lions. As they are carnivores they receive a meaty feast usually two or three times a week. By gorging on a large amount of food it results in them not needing to eat again for a few days. This is how they would naturally feed in the wild, therefore we are trying to replicate their natural behaviour as closely as we can. However, it is discouraged to feed carnivores live prey within UK zoos, therefore we are unable to provide them with the ability to hunt like they would in the wild.

Walks: Flamborough’s impressive headland

Flamborough village is only about three miles north east of Bridlington and has always seemed to me like a second home. With its remains of a castle, a medieval fortified manor house and quaint pubs, it alone has much to offer. However, take the B1255 North Marine Road out of the village to seek Flamborough’s coastline and impressive headland.
