The baby boom is in full swing at Cornwall’s Newquay Zoo with several new animal species born in the last few weeks including four Asian Short Clawed Otters, a second Chapman’s Zebra and a Crowned Lemur.
The recent new additions to the animal population at Newquay Zoo follow the announcements of the births of a Black Tree Monitor, a Humboldt Penguin Chick, a Squirrel Monkey, twin Owston’s Civets and a Chapman’s Zebra.
John Meek, Curator of Animals at Newquay Zoo, commented on the recent new arrivals: “ We are really delighted with the further new additions to the animal population here at The Zoo, particularly another Chapman’s Zebra, the beautiful baby Asian Short Clawed Otters and the adorable Crowned Lemur. Who needs a trip to the cinema this summer with the children when you can come to The Zoo and get really close to our wonderful new animals?”
Stewart Muir, Director Of Living Collections added: “ The amazing additions to the animal collections here at The Zoo are a great testament to the terrific conservation work of the keeping team and ensures that the species can continue to flourish under our stewardship here at Newquay Zoo.”
The new young animals are now fully integrated with their parents at The Zoo and visitors are encouraged to visit The Zoo to fully appreciate the new young additions.
