Miniature piglets at Backyard to Bush’s farmyard are keeping their little trotters warm. The eight tiny piglets were born almost two weeks ago and are staying dry in their parents’ straw-filled shelter.
As pineapple tops were scattered throughout the paddock, Taronga’s female elephant herd along with Luk Chai and Pathi Harn had some very special onlookers.
If you walk past the Kodiak Bear exhibit and see something black and shiny climbing the trees, don’t be too alarmed. Today was moving day for our Sun Bears, Victoria and Mr. Hobbs.
Keepers packed up early Friday morning and made the journey home from Chiltern.
Taronga Zoo's Project Penguin 2010 kicked off today! The first half of the Primary School Students from around Manly visited the Zoo to begin learning all about their locally endangered Little Penguin colony.
Early this morning we discovered that our female Francois Langur, Saigon, wasn't carrying her infant, Ganju. Unfortunately, while searching the exhibit, we found Ganju on the ground showing no signs of life. He was rushed to our Wildlife Hospital, however, our veterinarians confirmed the langur had died early today.
Volunteers and keepers spent yesterday afternoon and today tracking the 43 Regents that we have sent out into the wild.
Time has flown by as keepers try to keep up with baby Francois Langur, Ganju’s amazing progress. Yesterday, he celebrated his three week birthday, a big milestone in any infants life.
Our White Rhinoceros herd is doing well with Nadira the last calf born at the Zoo recently turning two. She’s getting closer to being the same size as her mother.
Rhinos are born without horns - for obvious reasons! The first horn begins to grow within a week or two, followed by the rear horn developing at around three months of age.
