This means a walk on the wild side cost £7.75 – and children can go in for just £5.50.

And there are lots of new faces waiting to welcome families according to Jude Rothwell, marketing manager at the East Park Drive attraction.

She said: “May Madness is our way of saying thank you to residents for the support they give throughout the year.

“It gives them a chance to visit their favourite zoo for a fraction of the price.

“We are planning another bumper year as we finalise a new enclosure in anticipation of the arrival of a pack of Iberian Wolves.

“The zoo has also welcomed several new babies this year, including ring tailed lemurs, King Colobus monkeys, red fronted lemurs and wallaby and kangaroo joeys. The birthing season is also in full swing over in the Children’s Farm with miniature goat kids, baby giant bunnies and a whole host of cute chicks.”

Other new arrivals include giant anteaters Andina and Eskil and two rare red-necked wallaby twins in their mother’s pouch.

Favourites such as Zambar the Amur Tiger and Meisie, a baby Western Lowland Gorilla are also awaiting visitors.

May Madness visitors need to provide valid identification with proof of address such as a driving licence or recent utility bill. It is open to residents living in postcodes FY1 to FY8, PR3 and PR4. The discount applies to all full price individual tickets, not family tickets.
