More baby news! Rhino calf is born!

Just days after we told you about our new baby giraffe, we are now delighted to say that a baby Black Rhino has also been born!

In the wild, black rhino populations have been ravaged by poaching and numbers are critically low. That's why this arrival is such a fantastic boost for the insurance population in zoos.

As with the baby giraffe, our keepers need to give mum Ema Elsa and her newborn time to bond and so they won't be on-show immediately. But we'll be sure to let you know as soon as you're able to see them.

In the meantime stay tuned, as we'll be sure to bring you more on both of our exciting new arrivals in the coming days.
