We Bought a Zoo!

The title of this blog entry refers to a film (and a book) which stars Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson, where Matt Damon's character buys a zoo! The film is based on a true story, and is based on the zoo that we visited today!

The zoo is just outside Plymouth on the edge of Dartmoor and was on our way to Porthleven, and seeing as the film has been on Sky recently, it would of been rude not to drop in and visit.

It should be noted that the film is based in the states and not in the actual zoo and so it is more the story line, rather than the location the the film is based on!

And it's a lovely little zoo. It's not as polished as the London or Marwells of the world, but it's a lovely little zoo with a good selection of areas and animals to visit. And using the Poppy gauge, in that she did not want to go home after 10mins and actually stayed 4hrs, it was petty good.

We did get to see Matt Damon, well, the person who Matt Damon plays in the film, Benjamin Mee, who is the person who did actually buy the zoo!
