La Hacienda

As well as exotic animals, Banham Zoo is also home to domestic animals from around the world.

Many of these can be seen in ‘La Hacienda’ near to the zoo entrance. Here you will see the pygmy goats from Africa, guinea pigs from South America, and Kune Kune pigs from New Zealand as well as many more!

Pygmy Goat 1

You can also visit our infamous rat room and see how many you can spot – You can even give them a bite to eat!

In ‘La Hacienda’ you will be able to touch or feed some of the animals, however for health and safety reasons we ask that if you touch any of the animals or their enclosure barriers, you use the hand washing facilities available.

Kune Pig

Brown Rat

Rattus norvegicus

Rats are part of the rodent family. Domestic rats are descended from the brown rat and there are many different breeds.



Size: 8 - 20cm
Weight: 200 - 400g



Originally from Asia, rats have spread with human transport and can now be found nearly everywhere in the world!



Rats will eat practically anything; fruit, nuts, bread. Their teeth grow constantly so they need to gnaw on hard foods to stop them overgrowing.



A litter of approximately 10 young are born after a 3 week pregnancy. The young are blind and bald for 2 to 3 weeks, and are fully grown at approximately 4 to 5 months.
