It seems that something is in the water at a wildlife park in Kent, as keepers have welcomed five newborns in the past month.

Port Lympne Wild Animal Park are celebrating the arrivals including a newborn bison, antelope, fishing cat kittens, fossa pups and a baby drill.

Adrian Harland, Animal Director at the park, said: "We’re all delighted with our spring baby boom and most of the youngsters are now starting to venture out and explore their new surroundings."

Although some of the newborns are out exploring their enclosures, the fossa pups are more shy deciding to stay in their next box.

Keepers are still keeping an eye on the pups with the help of technology by setting up a live feed from the den to a widescreen TV for visitors to watch.
