The reptile keepers at Taronga Zoo’s Reptile World watched five little rhinoceros iguanas hatch from their eggs in late April. So far, all of them are thriving. The keepers have successfully hatched and reared over 100 of these iguanas in the past, so they’re well-versed in the breeding and raising of this species.
Last week, frog specialists from Taronga Zoo, NSW National Parks, Melbourne Zoo and Healesville Sanctuary gathered in the frosty alpine region of Mount Kosciuszko to help ensure the survival of the Critically Endangered Corroboree Frog.
Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s Veterinarian, Benn Bryant recently visited the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Way Kambas National Park, Sumatra to provide veterinary assistance to an adult male Sumatran Rhino with health problems.
A fire broke out in a service building on the perimeter of Taronga Zoo overnight.
Fire Brigade crews attended and extinguished the fire before 3am.
No people or animals were injured in the fire.
Preliminary investigations have found no suspicious circumstances.
