Two new zebras for Perth Zoo
Two new zebras for Perth Zoo

Two male zebras have just arrived at Perth Zoo as companion animals for a female zebra.

Zaafir, 19 months, and Kamalu, 21 months, travelled to Perth from National Zoo and Aquarium in Canberra.

The geldings, half siblings, have finished their quarantine period and can now been seen in their African Savannah exhibit with female zebra Shona and the giraffes.

The zebras join other new additions including the first otters born at Perth Zoo in 18 years and a baby penguin born during the winter months.

During the October school holidays, the zoo is also celebrating the recent Olympics with a series of Zoo Games.

Kids can try their hand at tiny tot tennis, mini putt-putt, hockey, rugby, tee ball, baseball or jungle sports for a chance to be a gold medal winner.

Activities are free with entry and run on weekdays from 10am to 1pm.

Perth Zoo is open every day from 9am to 5pm.
