From the zoo's Facebook;
"Savannah gave birth to 2 males and one female. One male is under the care of another zoological facility and the other male and female will remain at Southwick's Zoo. We have a special treat! They will be available to "look, no touch" at our Open House in the Purple Peacock Gift Shop THIS Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 - 12:30 for those who are Holiday Shopping in the Gift Shop!

The male Lion cub has been named L.J in honor of his father, Leroy. The female is yet to be named, and guests could submit name suggestions at the Parakeet Landing Gift Shop.
The ponies at Elk Horn Livery Stable are now walking on a lead.

"A Peacock Party" will now be at 3:00 P.M. on Mondays instead of 3:30, from now until June 28th.
Apparently, Aoudads, Red Kangaroos, and sheep have been born at the zoo recently.

A Two-Toed Sloth family (Looks like Linne's Two-Toed Sloths) have gone on exhibit near the Chimpanzee exhibit.
Remember Capuchin Monkey baby Chip? He is now on exhibit with the other Black-Capped Capuchins.
