Taronga Western Plains Zoo has had a baby boom over the past six months, welcoming a range of rare and exotic animals.
A male Hippo calf, three Asian Small-clawed Otters and a female Giraffe calf have all been born at the Dubbo Zoo during that time and keepers say with the weather warming up now is the perfect time to come out and see them.
Taronga Western Plains Zoo Director, Steve Hink said all of the new arrivals are doing really well and can be seen on exhibit.
"Both Giraffe calf Layla and Hippo calf Kani are quite confident and often observed away from their mums exploring their surrounds," Mr Hinks said.
"The Otter pups are particularly active and have now learnt to swim, so are regularly spotted in the pond with their parents and older siblings."
On July 1, a giraffe calf was welcomed to the Zoo.
She was named Layla by her keepers, meaning born overnight in Swahili.
In April Cuddles the Hippo welcomed her baby boy, Kani, to the world.
