IT'S time for an exciting adventure at Whipsnade Zoo, on the trail of the big five!
We are giving away tickets so you can see some of the greatest stars of the animal kingdom and learn about them in a fun and challenging way.
The BIG 5 is an experience for adventurers big and small. Pick up your essential full colour quest guide at the start of the trail, which takes you around the five "action stops".
Take a peek through the rustic bear hide, check for signs of life and spot the cuddly European brown bears - Wellington, Winslow, Wendy and Penny. Try out the wheel of fortune at the Lions of the Serengeti and see how you measure up to a giraffe.
You may also want to watch:
Learn about the make-up of a rhino's horn and pit your hearing against an elephant's with the fun "giant ear", or check out the size of a pachyderm's footprint.
Set in 600 acres of scenic parkland on the top of the Chiltern hills, Whipsnade offers the opportunity to see more than 200 species of the most incredible and endangered creatures, making it one of Europe's largest zoos.
