Four feisty Tasmanian Devil joeys will have a general health check and paternity tests today at Taronga Zoo to determine the sire of the litter.
Springtime at Backyard to Bush has arrived along with bouncing baby animals, from tiny fluffy chicks to cute goat kids.
The elephants are still excited with the new soil we put in the paddocks, especially Thong Dee and Tang Mo. They still can’t get enough of it and it’s been almost two weeks!
We weighed Luk Chai on Sunday and he’s doubled his birth weight. In only three months, he now tips the scales at 206 kilos.
Korridge-Cup, the Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo that took a flight through suburban Mosman last week, has also been lacking a little bit of a confidence in his training sessions at Bird Show.
Ripley’s starting to look more and more like an adult Barking Owl. He’s now completely covered in feathers, making him look less like a fuzz ball.
This week has been a great reminder for all of us who work with Chimpanzees.
Yesterday was an extremely windy day for us at the zoo, with gusts up to 60 km/hr! On days like these we modify our show as some birds struggle in those winds, but even those that have proved themselves before can find it a bit tough.
Luk Chai’s got a new toy and it looks like it’s a winner! Previously we gave him a shaggy blue coloured ball, but that was so yesterday. Nowadays he’s much more interested in his new plaything - a textured purple ball which he loves mucking around with during bath time.
We’ve freshened up the elephants’ paddocks with an additional layer of organic top soil and there was great excitement in the herd when they realised there was something new to sprinkle on their backs.
