The arrival of young people joined one of Australia’s zoos after several births this week.
“We’ve seen these tiny little bright brown couples sticking in their pockets and the big ones coming in for protection, it was just fun,” testified Ken Brodie.
It is just one of the park’s new births recently, as zoos in South Australia continue to operate under the COVID-19 limits.
Three weeks ago a zebra goat joined the show, coming out for the first time in front of the camera today.
The calf has not been disclosed to the public at this time, it is being kept in solitary confinement with its mother.
Two hyena twins were spotted Tuesday, their first days being filmed inside their cave.
And the giraffe calf was born to 20-year-old Myeisha on Wednesday.
“It was indeed a very busy week at Monarto Safari Park,” said Zoos SA CEO Elaine Bensted.
The zoo is still only allowed to accommodate people under half the capacity, but management is hopeful that the new COVID safe system will allow more people at the gates.
The park is partnering with SA Health and is looking for more time to open for breakfast and lunch time.
“If we can do more, it’s better, myself.”
At the moment visitors are reminded to book their tickets online to avoid embarrassment.
