Meet the animals at Symbio Wildlife Park

The Red Panda is native to China and was first discovered in 1821, 48 years before Giant Pandas. Make sure you check them out next time you visit Symbio!

Sumatran Tigers are extremely fast swimmers. They have webbed toes which make them naturals in the water.

A baby Koala is called a Joey. When a Joey is born it is the size of a jelly bean and makes its way to its mother’s pouch where it keeps growing and developing for another seven months.

The Tasmanian Devil is a marsupial. Female marsupial animals have pouches in which they carry their young. The pouch helps the Tasmanian Devil mother to feed and protect newly born Devils.
