Have you met Melbourne Zoo's three teenage lion boys yet?

Kashka, Kubwa, and Kito may look pretty similar but the three brothers have very unique personalities. Can you tell them apart?

Happy World Giraffe Day! We're here with the giraffe keeper team at Melbourne Zoo as they carry out their morning routine before the zoo opens for the day. This is important to ensure the animals can receive health checks from the vets and keepers, as well as daily hoove care (or giraffe pedicures!)

Introducing Healesville Sanctuary’s sweetest little gem – and fittingly, her name is Gem! She was found wandering alone without her mum beside a country road. She was distressed and dehydrated and was brought into the Australian Wildlife Health Centre with a deep wound to her hip and some superficial scratches. She’s on the mend now, enjoying round the clock care – and cuddles.

There’s been a recent baby boom at Werribee Open Range Zoo and the Eland calves are getting to know their lower savannah neighbours!

They came face to face with one of the Southern White Rhinos who was just as intrigued by the new residents.
