The summer season began boldly with the birth of three delightful cheetah cubs. These precious felines have been thriving under the nurturing care of their first-time mother, Orchid.
The flurry of excitement has continued with the arrival of greater kudu and impala calves.
Over the last eight weeks, we’ve welcomed two males and one female to each of the kudu and impala families.
The young kudus, Wasabi, Zinc, and Orion, are already showing their personalities as they explore their surroundings.
The three impalas got to their feet quickly and are bonding with their attentive parents.
All our captivating calves are putting on weight and gaining strength at a healthy pace.
Just around the corner from our African savanna, a new baby was added to our troupe of black and white colobus monkeys. Born to proud parents Adanna and Ndizi, the newborn is easy to recognize thanks to its all-white coat.
Spoonbill and Ibis Chicks
Not to be outdone, our feathered friends have also added joy to the roost. From our North American habitat, three roseate spoonbills have hatched, adding undeniable cuteness to the flock.The young spoonbills are easy to identify as they are adorned in snowy white feathers and will gain their pink color as they mature.
And there’s even more rare news – Waldrapp ibis have hatched!
You may have never heard of this particular species and that may be due to the fact that they are critically endangered in the wild.
There are only a few hundred of these birds surviving in their native Morocco.
