    Vince the Vulture

    Vince, our male king vulture, lives in a big aviary with his mate in the Amazon area. He is a very intelligent bird, and he quite likes people. The other day I persuaded Vince's keeper to let me go into his cage to try to make friends with him. All went well - Vince even let me stroke his bald head - until I tried to leave! Vince didn't want me to go so he gave me a big peck on the ankle! He has a big sharp beak so it rather hurt, but I don't think he really meant it to!

    He is an extremely handsome bird, don't you think! Look out for him the next time you come to the Wildlife Park.

    Best wishes
