Is it teething time for your little one?
Tayto Park is one of the biggest attractions for families in Dublin, and now the park has welcomed a new member to the family. A tiny female Fishing Cat cub was born in August and is slowly being introduced to her surroundings while her mum and dad keep a watchful eye over her. The Fishing Cat is an endangered species and her arrival is a wonderful success story for the Tayto Park breeding programme.
The Fishing Cat is found in Thailand, Cambodia and India, and lives off small birds, fish and amphibians in and around the rivers and wetlands.
Lee Donohoe, who is head keeper at Tayto Park says “The Fishing Cat is typically twice the size of the average domestic cat, the new cub has settled well into her surroundings and is full of energy. She sees every part of her compound as a mini adventure!”
International Cat Day takes place this month and Tayto Park is celebrating the seven different cat species that live in the park – the Amur Leopard, the Ocelot, the Serval, the Mountain Lion, the Eurasian Lynx, the Jaguarundi and the Fishing Cat.
The new cub, along with a 3 month old Buffalo and some Meerkat pups can all be seen every weekend in Tayto Park. Visit for more details.
