mymodernmet On January 7th, two adorable baby #meerkats were born at Sydney's Taronga Zoo (@tarongazoo) and they recently began to wander outside their nest box. This milestone is especially meaningful because this marks the first meerkat birth in nearly seven years at the #zoo. 6h

chesterzoo *INCREDIBLE NEWS*

Our keepers have hatched the first ever tuatara outside of their native New Zealand - a successful breeding that has taken several decades to achieve.

The tuatara is one of the world's oldest living species and is believed to have pre-dated the dinosaurs, having been on the planet for more than 225 million years.

Around 70 million years ago they became extinct everywhere except New Zealand, where it now has iconic status.

Our achievements in successfully hatching the tuatara - and all of the intricate skills developed along the way - give us confidence that we can help save highly threatened species such as mountain chicken frogs and Bermudan skinks from extinction in the wild.

*RHINO CALF BORN*

Watch the beautiful moment our 13-year-old Eastern black rhino Ema Elsa gave birth.

The male calf arrived at 10:54pm on Saturday night and both mum and youngster are doing really well.

Ema Elsa and her calf are off-show for the time being as the pair get to know each other.

We'll have more news and updates soon!
