Oasis tree shrew

Have your say

Tree shrews and marmosets from a Milnthorpe zoo have been featured in a new BBC series about some of the world’s smallest mammals.

Lakeland Wildlife Oasis near Milnthorpe is home to tree shrews from Borneo and marmosets from Brazil, which have been featured in the three-part wildlife drama Hidden Kingdoms, narrated by Stephen Fry.

A 10 minute ‘making of’ at the end of episode three will show that some of the marmoset close-ups – impossible to get in the wild – were filmed at the zoo.
