Melbourne Zoo is constantly changing, with new and upgraded surroundings for both the wildlife and Zoo visitors.
A very special new facility opened this morning that will ensure that the Zoo is more accessible and convenient than ever for all Victorians and visitors to the State.
It’s going to be all about amazing amphibians at the Zoo this spring, starting tomorrow with the reopening of the completely renovated World of Frogs.
September is ANZ Zoo Month at Melbourne Zoo and thanks to our partnership with ANZ, if you are an ANZ customer kids will receive free entry throughout the month of September.
The Zoo’s first-ever male Asian Elephant calf celebrated his fifth birthday today with treats prepared by his Keepers plus a Zoo Bakery banana cake with strawberries!
This story began in 1918, when rats ran ashore from a ship grounded on Lord Howe Island.
Native wildlife had no defence against them, so Lord Howe Island Stick Insects plus many other species were wiped out.
Baboon baby Juju has ventured out into the Baboon Lookout exhibit for the first time today, with her mother Huddo and the other Hamadryas Baboons.
Cooperation is the name of the game for African Wild Dogs!
They are highly effective hunters, long-distance runners able to track down their prey so successfully that very few escape a pursuing pack.
Dads are in the spotlight leading up to Father’s Day, and one of the most prolific papas in the Zoo’s long history would have to be ‘Adam’, the first male Lord Howe Island Stick Insect to arrive here.
It’s exactly a year since Asian Elephant Num-Oi became pregnant, so she is 12 months into a 22-month gestation.
The conception was complicated, because the baby’s father is in Perth.
Siamang Isidor is 32 today!
Keepers made sure that Isidor had plenty of his favourite treats on his birthday, including leafy branches to munch on, plus grapes, carrots, and bananas.
