“The USA miners cat comes to the UK!”

Exmoor zoo is unique amongst many UK zoos - here is just one reason why! These beautiful little animals are the first pair to be on exhibit in a zoo outside of the USA and Mexico where they naturally occur.

As far as we can find out this is the first time ever this Texan “cat” has ever been in a zoo in Europe! Fascinatingly these are members of the racoon family (despite having the local name of miner’s cat) and are more closely related to exotic sounding animals like the olingo or kinkajou! They are about the size of a domestic cat.

This pair were rescued into Texas zoo when their parents were killed in the wild and were offered to the UK as they were unable to use then for their educational encounters. Only just being placed on exhibit they have been at Exmoor since the autumn of 2018 and this spring season should be their first chance to breed.

Cacomistles or more commonly called ringtails are a shy nocturnal animal from the drier regions and we hope to encourage some day time activity around their feeding times at the zoo. Absolutely adorable with their large eyes and ringed tails they will make a fascinating exhibit for anybody curious and interested in the animals that emerge in the hours of darkness!

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    Currently it sounds like Movable Type is the preferred
    blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is
    that what you're using on your blog?

  • quest bars cheap said

    I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter
    a blog that's equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you
    have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few
    people are speaking intelligently about. I am
    very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt
    for something concerning this.

  • quest bars cheap said

    May I simply say what a relief to discover somebody that genuinely understands
    what they're talking about on the web. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it
    important. More people really need to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised that you are not more popular because
    you definitely have the gift.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.
    Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I'd definitely appreciate it.

  • sling tv said

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to generate a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.

    Awesome! Its actually awesome article, I have got much clear idea concerning

    The most painful mistake I see new freelancers make is taking jobs at content mills, or other jobs with content mill prices, and get stuck doing those jobs long after they should have left."
    It's okay to take a job writing blog posts for 1 cent a word in order to build a portfolio, but once you've got a few good pieces from it, for the love of god get out! Use them to help you further your career, don't let them use you."

    Learning how to write a kick-ass freelance proposal will teach you a lot about positioning your value, highlighting your strengths and selling yourself as a premium service-provider to your clients.
    The biggest mistake first-time entrepreneurs tend to make is not asking for help OR not asking for the right help from the right people."

    And a close second is not following up and nurturing those relationships when they do ask for help. There's something that Tony Robbins always says about the importance of 'standing on the shoulders of other giants' and I think this is such an important thing for people to keep in mind."
    Pretty much anything you are going to go through, someone else has already gone through. Pretty much any feeling you are going to have, someone else has already had. Any obstacle, any roadblock, ANYTHING! Someone has come up against them and figured out a way to get around them. Tap into that. Whether it's reading a book, reaching out or shadowing someone, get help and then do it

    When investors tell you why they don't like your pitch, they're almost always lying. They'll usually tell you that you're too early, or you need more traction, or you need too much money, or you need too little money."
    But if they really thought you had something brilliant, they wouldn't let you out of their sight. They're simply offering an excuse for not liking your company. Don't walk away thinking that the problem is that you just aren't a fit. You need to find out what's really wrong with your story. Don't count on investors to tell you. Get a few good, savvy mentors or advisors to tell you the truth."

    First-time entrepreneurs pay too much attention to what other companies are doing without thinking for themselves."
    Every company is unique and has an entirely different DNA. A particular strategy may not work for your company, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t work for mine and vice versa. My piece of advice is that you should always ask yourself: Why didn’t that strategy didn’t work for them, and will it work for me?"

    Hi there, I enjoy reading all of your article. I wanted to
    write a little comment to support you.

  • sling tv said

    Hi! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours
    take a massive amount work? I'm brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a
    daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring
    bloggers. Appreciate it!

    Very energetic article, I loved that bit. Will there be a part 2?
