Children can test their super powers against all the weird and wonderful animals at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo this Easter.

As part of a 2018 Superhero Takeover, youngsters visiting the zoo can embark on a trail around the park and learn about the different skills of the wildlife there.

Every participant is given a special comic book full of fun activities to do around the zoo, including testing their agility against a monkey, their sense of smell against a brown bear, and their stealth of a tiger.

To complete their mission, the children will head to Superhero HQ for some family games.

A series of talks and demonstrations around the zoo will also delve deeper into animal’s special abilities, such as colossal elephants, super-armoured dwarf crocodiles and super-stinky ring-tailed lemurs.

The event runs from March 30 to April 15 2018. Book online at www.zsl.org
