Tayto Park says hello to a host of newborns

Pitter patter of little paws at Tayto Park.

IT’S SUMMER AND you know what that means…

Mating season.

Tayto Park has recently welcomed the arrival of two new sets of newborns. Tayto Park said hello to 3 Eurasian lynx kittens and 7 Corsac fox cubs, in addition to the Fishing Cat born last Autumn.

These new animals will join those already at the well-stocked Park – including herds of American bison, Dexter cattle, Jacob sheep, Vietnamese pot bellied pigs, miniature donkeys, ocelots, skunks, monkeys, wallabies… And the list goes on.

Not to mention, the Park  is also expecting a litter of meerkat pups shortly.

It’s baby animal fever!
