The team at the zoo at Sewerby Hall and Gardens are very pleased to announce the birth of a new female Llama cria, born this morning at around 11.15am.
Both the baby and her mum Gladys are doing well. The zoo staff were on hand to check everything was fine for the birth. The new baby is a sister to big brother Vernon.
Head zookeeper John Pickering said: "This is fantastic news! We are so pleased with the new addition to the llama herd here at Sewerby zoo! We were excited to discover that Gladys was pregnant when she arrived here!"
Details of the new arrival's name will be announced shortly.
Gladys and Vernon, both named after Elvis Presley's parents, both arrived at the zoo earlier this year.
