The dingo pups are growing and are now spending their days in the dingo enclosure with lots of visitors taking the opportunity to go in to have their photo taken with them.
Sniper’s little piglets are also wowing the visitors.
Being the year of the horse and we are very pleased to introduce our new Przewalski’s Horse, Murray. Murray has been transferred from Taronga Western Plains Zoo as a companion animal for our resident male Max, who sadly has been alone since his mate Valeri passed earlier this year. Keepers have been amazed at how quickly the pair have bonded.
Thank you to Big 4 Parkgate Resort for their recent successful “Chat with the Cheetah” promotion.
Come and see the new piglets. “Sniper” is looking after her first litter like a champ. Action down in the goat enclosure with the arrival of “Fergus” and some cute kids as well. The first of the Devils destined for release back into disease-free areas of Tasmania have arrived. Shey and Izazi, two more Servals have arrived after a couple months in quarantine.
Make your way to the zoo to entertain the children for a few hours over the holidays.
Memberships are great value with the cost being equivalent to two visits and you can come as many times as you like in the 12 months from date of purchase.
The Pygmy Marmoset twins are growing fast and are lifting their heads to check you out when you come to visit. The Common Marmoset baby is very independent now, making his own way round instead of hitching a ride everywhere. The Black-capped Capuchins have settled into their new enclosure extremely well and are proving to be as popular as ever.
There’s been some action down in the pig pen. We have extended the yard to be substantially bigger and introduced “Sniper” a little miniature pig but unfortunately, we did have a sad time with losing one of our favourites, Peaches, to cancer.
We’ve had some late nights with a film crew in from Germany who are making a documentary about the threats to some of Australia’s unique species such as Bilbies and Wombats.
