Children from Munchkins, in Newhaven, paid a festive visit to Drusillas Park this week.
The day included an educational session where they got to meet and touch various different animals including a hedgehog, cockroach, millipede, gerbil and a chinchilla.
They visited Santa in his grotto and each child received a present. They also met the reindeer and the huskies, as well as looking round the zoo.
Munchkins is now closed for Christmas but opens again on January 7.
