Crealy Great Adventure Park has been granted a zoo licence and will keep exotic animals, including meerkats and monkeys.
A yet-to-be-named breeding pair of meerkats are already on show in their Meerkat Manor enclosure.
The move is being hailed “a giant leap forward” by the attraction’s owners. they say it is a way of continually developing itself.
The second phase of the zoo development will see the arrival of a family of Marmoset monkeys.
