Birth of a giraffe calf

In early evening of Friday, May 3 our Rothschild giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis rothschildi) Pauline delivered her second calf. The giraffe group had been returned to its building in late afternoon after Pauline had started showing the first signs of an imminent calving. The birth went perfectly well and around 11 pm the calf was standing, ready to suckle.

Birth of two ring-tailed lemurs

Why not take advantage of the Easter break to visit the zoo and meet our two adorable baby ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta)?
Two females of our group housed in the monkey house have given birth to healthy babies about one month ago. Both newborns are doing well and are becoming more active as days go by.
