    Cute Baby Elk


    Our baby elk is nearly two months old now and is doing really well. He (or maybe she - we're not sure yet) is getting quite brave now, and is starting to leave mum's side to explore by himself.



    He was quite weak and feeble when he was born, so it is lovely to see him looking so strong and healthy in the sunshine. He was born one of twins, but sadly his twin did not survive. The photo below was taken when he was just a couple of days old.


    His mum is quite a fierce elk - even the keepers don't get too close to her. But she is a very good mother!

    Hope to see you at the Park this summer.

    Best wishes
