Finally it seems like spring has really and truly arrived. Typically at this time of the year, the zookeepers at Amsterdam’s charming Artis Zoo are busy welcoming the new arrivals – not least of which are three gorgeous baby maras, seen here with their mum. Maras are native to South America and can jump over 2 metres high when fully grown.
Another new addition is Alexandro, a male tapir calf. His striking stripes would act as a perfect camouflage in his native South America.
And the cutest baby Bennett wallaby, getting lots of TLC from his Mum.
Celebrate spring with a visit to Artis this weekend. There’s lots to explore, including a planetarium, an aquarium, and a butterfly house.
