Next Episode of Animal Park is
Series exploring life behind the scenes at Longleat Estate and Safari Park.
As temperatures at the safari park soar, so too do pulses on Penguin Island, because a love triangle has emerged between Peaches, Rihanna and 'two-timer' Redley. Keepers are desperate for chicks so want a happy couple to emerge from the heartache, but sadly one poor penguin will be left on the shelf. Kate Humble and Ben Fogle come face to face with the park's three male gorillas for the first time, and Jean Johansson attempts to stay dry as she oversees bathtime for three emus. Six-thousand miles away at the Lewa Conservancy in northern Kenya, a group of keepers conduct vital research into animals in their care. Polly chances upon a herd of wild zebra and discovers they are among the most threatened species in Africa.
As the baby boom continues, keepers in charge of one of the planet's rarest animals get a fright as she makes an unscheduled trip into the reserve. Keepers capture the arrival of a baby giraffe called Reggie on camera, and Jean Johansson joins Anne the elephant to see just how much water her trunk can hold. And on their final day in Africa, keepers are hot on the trail of wild lions, but will they find them before it is time to fly home?
Top wildlife cameraman Louis Labrom attempts to capture the Siberian tigers in super-slow motion as they ambush their prey, but can he convince them to take his bait? Meanwhile, over in Wallaby Wood, keepers have had to turn detectives to discover how the mischievous marsupials are escaping their enclosure. Ben meets an animal with poison so toxic it can stop a human heart, Jean Johansson opens a hair salon for 17 boisterous camels, and Kate relives one of the saddest moments in Animal Park history.
After six years spent helping rehabilitate Anne the elephant, the park bids farewell to one of her most cherished keepers. Meanwhile, Kate Humble plays cupid with two strange animals, Ben Fogle catches up with a pregnant anteater that is due any day, and Jean Johansson is with a much-loved tapir as vets attempt to find out what is wrong with her. Will x-rays and blood samples give them a diagnosis before it is too late?
