Longleat Safari Park Part 2: Jungle Kingdom

The Jungle Kingdom section of Longleat Safari Park is the area you travel around on foot and has a whole range of animal species – more than a few I’d never met before. One of the my favourites of these new creatures has to be the binturong, which we first encountered curled up asleep but which became more active and alert once we were on our way out of the park. One of only two carnivores with a tail capable of grasping, they are slow-moving animals that live in forests and are on the vulnerable animals list.

668

A selection of the other animals you can find in this section are below:

On the near threatened list, Thornback Stingray’s have an acute sense of smell and can sense minor electrical pulses created by muscle contractions of organisms nearby.
