Two new baby beavers have been born at Drusillas Park in East Sussex.
The two kits were born on Wednesday 5th June 2013. Their father Gnasher has become a parent for the first time. Their mother is called Gnawer.
The park is the only zoo in the Uk to house North American beavers.
The site's Head Keeper, Mark Kenward said: “It’s always difficult to know how an animal will cope with becoming a parent for the first time but in Gnasher’s case there really was no need to worry...
"From the moment the kits were born he has protected and cared for them and even cut the umbilical cord with his teeth. He has proven himself to be a fantastic dad and deserves to be thoroughly spoilt this Fathers Day.”
A zoo keeper has been looking after critically endangered monkeys in Indonesia.
Jodie Dryden, who works at from Drusillas Park in East Sussex, has been assisting a programme for five weeks to raise awareness of the endangered black macaques in the wild.
The macaques species are looked after at Drusillas but their population in the wild has declined by 80% over 40 years because of habitat destruction and hunting.
The primates are considered a local delicacy and are being killed at an unsustainable rate.
Jodie said: "I work closely with the family group of macaques at Drusillas and have a keen interest in this species. I wanted to do something extra to help and the Selamatkan Yaki programme seemed perfect."
Staff at Drusillas Park in East Sussex are hunting for two racoons that have escaped from their enclosure.
Two of the four resident racoons were discovered missing during early morning checks.
The racoons named Turpin and Bandit had moved to a shared enclosure at the beginning of March. It's thought they might have been scared by a loud noise and fled over an electric fence.
Zoo Manager, Sue Woodgate, said: “Incidents of this nature happen very rarely at the zoo but when they do, it is clearly a worrying time. The keepers have been scouring the park and surrounding area but we are appealing to the public to be vigilant too."
