Dudley Zoo is to putting up a package to adopt Narna, a three-year-old Egyptian fruit bat, as part of a competition.

To win it, visitors must bring in decorated pumpkins as part of Freak Week, which takes place from October 21 to 29.

Visitors can also follow a mystery trail around the 40-acre site to win a prize.

There will also be arts and crafts in a new farm barn and the chance to come face-to-face with creepy critters in the Discovery Centre at 1.15pm each day.

There is also a chance to learn about rarest and scariest animals in the world with our extended talk and feed programme as well as finding out about the 11th century Dudley Castle’s past with led ghost walks around the cobbled grounds.

Marketing manager Andrea Hales said: “We have a spooktacular half term week planned, so visit DZG if you dare and come and join the fun."

Discounted admission with a carved pumpkin is valid for up to four people and is priced £10.50 per adult and £7.25 per child (3-15 years)
