WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo has welcomed the arrival of some gorgeous
residents to the new Kangaroo Walk-About area.
A flurry of four adorable, distinctively striped baby emu chicks
arrived last week from John Morony Wildlife Care Centre, who, as
part of an ongoing partnership with WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, housed
the baby emus throughout a month-long quarantine period.
Marcus Mellenbergh, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo Bird Keeper, commented:
"We're thrilled to have a healthy and happy new brood with us. Emus
grow extremely quickly - our chicks will be fully grown in the next
five or so months - so now is a fantastic time to visit!"
These lovable little birds will grow to a not-so-little 1.2
metres, and weigh as much as 50 to 60 kilograms as full-grown
More kangaroos and wallabies too - including babies!
The chicks were joined by other exciting new WILD LIFE Sydney
Zoo habitants who now reside in the attraction's newest exhibit,
Kangaroo Walk-About. These animals, include two Grey Kangaroos, six
Agile Wallabies - some carrying baby joeys in their pouches, and
eight vibrantly coloured Princess Parrots.
Princess Parrots are known for their affectionate and playful
nature and are currently listed as endangered.
