Mogo Zoo welcomes baby Karn

Sally Padey and her team at Mogo Zoo were delighted this week to announce the birth of the zoo's newest resident Karn

Born to Sharni, Karn is a happy healthy baby boy and the latest testament to Sally's commitment to preserving endangered species that saw her bring Karn's father Mtundu from Auckland Zoo in Feb 2017. While Mogo Zoo does have Ijuma, another wonderful male, he does not father now following treatment for a prostate issue that saw him castrated as a last resort to ensure he survived to live a long and happy life.

The expansion of the Mogo Zoo giraffe family doesn't stop just yet though with Sharni's daughter Binty also pregnant and due to give birth shortly.
