Since starting at Adelaide Zoo in December I have been on the Big Cat Round, which I absolutely love. Now I am being trained on the Mixed Carnivore Round which consists of the Sea Lions, Binturong, Dwarf Mongoose, Meerkat and Africa Wild Dog.

Some of you may be surprised the Sea Lions fall under the Carnivore umbrella

Ever get the feeling like your being watched? I get that feeling everyday I am at work and it's not just a feeling... I am usually being watched when I walk along the back service road behind the big cats.

No, it is not a camera or a person watching me, it’s a very nosey Sumatran Tiger named Tuan!

Tuan is our 12 year old male tiger from Germany

Kittens? What Kittens?!

Yes our Serval kittens certainly don’t look like kittens anymore! Our three Servals are four months old and, if you look quickly, can be mistaken for their mum, Kali.

At the last vet check and vaccination, they were weighing in at a healthy 3-4 kilos, so by now they would be in the 5 kilo range. Yes, we feed them very well, especially now that they are predominantly eating solid foods and are suckling from Kali much less.
