First Warthog Arrival

By Chester Zoo

These two piglets which stood at just 30cm tall at birth were welcomed as brilliant new additions to the new-borns at the zoo.

The 10 year long breeding program that keepers worked closely on was all worth the wait with parents Tamzin and Magnum proudly introducing their new borns to the world in early summer. This was a great moment for the Warthog species and for us here at Chester Zoo.
