Zoo Babies All Set To Celebrate Mother’s Day

 

Updated : Mar 23, 2009

The animal mammies in Dublin Zoo will be the stars of the show this Mother's Day. A number of new baby animals arrived over the last 12 months making it a very busy and exciting time for the zoo and an extra special Mother’s Day!

The zoo's latest arrival, Neema, a three-month-old baby giraffe, will be helping her mum, Jenny, to celebrate the day along with elephant mum Yasmin who gave birth to Budi, the first elephant bull calf born in Dublin Zoo, early last year. The Zoo will also honour new seal mum Ciara, rhino mother Ashanti and tapir mammy Hilary, who is an endangered species originating from South America, who gave birth to Diago last November.

"Obviously our mums are quite well pampered, so we won't be treating them to anything special this Sunday. Although, the elephants might get a few extra bananas," the zoo's head of marketing, Veronica Chrisp, told the Evening Herald.b "All the animals are given treats every day, so Sunday will be no different. Although, if it's a nice day, the elephants will get an extra special hose down in the habitat. They like to go for a swim then with the babies, it's a really wonderful sight," said Veronica.

As for the zoo babies, they are going from strength to strength. "They're all doing brilliantly. Our rhino calf Zuki will be a year old in June. Our little bull elephant Budi is now just over a year old and is just full of mischief and fun."

Staff at the Zoo are also keeping their fingers crossed for new arrivals this year. "We are really hopeful that we will have tiger cubs this year -- but there's nothing concrete yet," added Veronica.
