Rugby players meet some real heavyweights
THE Exeter Chiefs visited Paignton Zoo recently – and came up against some real heavyweights.
Players and staff encountered elephants, giraffes and giant tortoises and even scrummed down with a gorilla. Female African elephant Duchess impressed many.
Mark Twiggs, Head of Strength and Conditioning, said: "Duchess weighs around 4,000 kilos, which equates to nearly the whole squad."
Some of the squad packed down with one of Paignton Zoo's Great Gorilla sculptures. To mark its 90th birthday, life-size model gorillas are being sponsored by businesses and community groups.
