Drop by Singapore Zoo’s RepTopia and say hello to its two newest members, the crocodile monitor hatchlings. The pair are the first ever to be successfully bred under human care, which marks a significant milestone for the herpetology team as the species is known to be difficult to breed.

Singapore Zoo also welcomed a pair of red-shanked douc langur babies, which brings the park‚Äôs breeding record for the endangered species to 33. Head down to Primate Kingdom to catch these ‚Äúcostumed apes‚ÄĚ in their extravagant coats of red, black, white, grey and gold highlights. They are definitely not hard to miss!

About 60 of these highly vulnerable Santa Cruz ground doves from the Solomon Islands were transferred to the Jurong Bird Park as part of a species recovery plan. And by 2019, the avian team had successfully bred 37 hatchlings - a big win for the species which has a wild population that is estimated at only 300. The hatchlings are a boost to the world’s only assurance colony for this endangered species outside its native Solomon Islands.

Be sure to catch little Sutera and his family at Night Safari. Sutera is the 31st Malayan tapir calf to be born here. The calf, whose name means silk in Malay, was born on 25 July 2019, and has since grown out of its signature watermelon-like dappled coat into a two-toned coat that is distinct in adult tapirs.

Hop aboard the River Safari Cruise and keep your eyes peeled for Estrella - the park’s fourth giant anteater pup, which was born on 21 August 2019. The black, white and grey pup was given her name through public votes. Estrella (which means star in Spanish) has an especially playful personality and is often seen wrestling with her mother Lapura.
