Sea Lions keep cool with fishy mocktails

Temperatures in the UK have soared over the last few days so the zoo team at Chessington World of Adventures have been working hard to keep the animals refreshed and comfortable.

While the Californian sea lions have been enjoying their fishy drinks, Bolivian squirrel monkeys, Rothschild’s giraffes and ring-tailed coati have been tucking into animal-friendly ice lollies made from fruit and vegetables made from beetroot, carrots, watermelon and spring greens.

The resort's new Humboldt penguin chicks have found relief in the cool waters of their bay area, while even the Amur tigers have been enjoying a dip too

To catch a glimpse of the animals and enjoy the rides that Chessington has to offer, visit, where standard day tickets start from £34.
