Prepare for a spook-tacular Halloween at Dudley Zoo

There’s set to be some frighteningly family-friendly fun at Dudley Zoo and Castle this Halloween half term.

Visitors can join the zoo’s Education Team each day for Skull Skool, when they can help identify some brilliant and bizarre skulls and skeletons from a varied collection of biofacts and artefacts, many of which have been donated to DZC over the years from Customs and Trading Standards.
There's a chance to get into the spooky spirit by taking part in a Vital Venoms and Practical Poisons trail around the 40-acre site, which aims to shine a light on some of the fascinating and overlooked species.
Plus you can learn more about the rarest and scariest animals in the world with an extended talk programme and visit the zoo’s most creepy critters including bats, snakes, vampire crabs, poison dart frogs and spiders.
There'll also be an opportunity to explore the 11th century Dudley Castle, which is reportedly one of the most haunted venues in the country and discover more about those who allegedly continue to roam the cobbled grounds, including the infamous Grey Lady and the drummer boy. Zoo Manager, Matt Lewis, said:

“We have a fang-tastic half term week planned, so visit Dudley Zoo and Castle if you dare and come and join the fun!”
