Amani and Thembi enjoy their new home
On a recent trip to Werribee Zoo we headed out onto the African Savannah exhibit to catch up with male Giraffe boys Amani and Thembi, who were transferred to Werribee Zoo from Taronga Western Plains Zoo in May this year.
Both boys are doing very well and have grown approximately half a metre and gained 150kgs in weight each according to their keepers, Justine and Deb. They are definitely growing up fast!
Their new home sees them roam the wide open spaces with Zebra, Eland and White Rhinos as well as two other Giraffe – Tony and Kinta. This would have been something totally new for the pair who which were part of the Giraffe herd at Taronga Western Plains Zoo before heading down south.
It is good to see that they both have settled in well to their new home at Werribee.
