Werribee Zoo News!



Hello class,

As I’m sure you all know we are off to the Werribee Zoo this week! I wonder if anyone sore the new baby that was just born at the Zoo?

The baby  Southern White Rhino weighed 67kg when she was born! Thats pretty big. Can you tell me is the Southern White Rhino endanger? What country do they come from?

This new baby doesn’t have a name yet and I thought you may have some ideas? We would love to hear what you would call the baby if you could name her.


Don’t forget to get to school early on the day of the excursion, to bring a waterproof jacket and lunch in a labeled plastic or paper bag. We are going to be leaving school as soon as we are all ready!

  1. Hi Beth! I’ve got a few ideas of what the Rhino’s name could be: Bianca, Grace or Angelina. What do you think of the names? I also enjoyed the excursion very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very,very, VERY, much. I had a lot of favorites, but my FAVORITE was the safari bus. Melina

  2. By the way i had a wonderful day today at the zoo and i had a name for the baby rhino,Harriet i couldn’t think of a African name.

  3. Dear Beth,
    These are a few names that I thought are nice for the Rhino: Rumbo,Rascal,Savannah,Smiley or Francesca.Do you think they are sweet?On the excursion I loved all of it. It was all very interesting and fun,but the thing I liked the most was seeing the Rhino and the Giraffes on the Safari.
