We have seen many articles with photos of the 8 polar bears in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park but this park offers a good home for many other sweet animals.
There are 3 black rhinos here at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, this is our only female ‘Najuma’ who is pregnant and will give birth in the Spring.
Also pictured is Makibo, who is the father. Sadly, Najuma lost her first calf a couple of years ago, so hopefully the birth will be successful.
Giant Otter: There are 7 giant otters, mum & dad plus 5 offspring
The baby is, of course, all visitors’ darling.
Looking at the world behind mama’s back.
Even the most curious baby gets tired. Happy dreams to you, sweetie!
There are a total of 3 giraffes at the park, Palle & Jengo our Reticulated giraffes and are seen having a little tiff. The third one is a Rothschild’s giraffe named Jambo who is darker in colour.
Even more Wow! 🙂
We also have 2 Grevy’s Zebra’s
This one seems to be doing the morning gymnastics 🙂

Time for a snack
Now I can watch what’s going on down there.
There are also beautiful big cats in this park.
This is only a small selection of all the beautiful animals in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. You will see more of them later in this magazine.
