SHOPPING FOR SAND CATS

The 12 most expensive creatures to 'adopt' at Bristol Zoo:

1 gorilla (£2500)
2 lion (£2000)
3 okapi (£1000)
4 pygmy hippo (£1000)
5 fur seal (£500)
6 tapir (£500)
7 aye aye (£250)
8 giant tortoise (£250)
9 red panda (£250)
10 dwarf crocodile (£250)
11 gentoo penguin (£250)
12 otter (£250)

Bargains include:
- a giant millipede - your adopted pet kid for only £50!
- a bleeding heart dove for £150 (these always play dead, looking like they've been shot in the chest)
- poison dart frog for £50 (could come in handy)
