With temperatures soaring, greater one-horned rhinos Asha and Komala have found the perfect way to cool down – by hitting the pool!

GIRAFFE CALF BORN!

This is the very first pic of our new giraffe calf – born yesterday to mum, Dagmar!

Dagmar gave birth at 13:05 and her new arrival was up on its feet and suckling not long after. Our keepers haven't yet been able to confirm whether it's a boy or a girl but as soon as they do, we'll be sure to let you know what name they've picked.

The house is closed today to give mum and calf some important bonding time. But we'll be sure to keep you posted as to how they are getting on in the coming days.

Motherly love!

Our shy little okapi calf Usala has made his first public appearance - thanks to some gentle encouragement from his mum, Stuma.

Usala was born just a month ago and is really finding his feet!

Double duckling delight!

Two rare white-winged ducklings have been spotted enjoying a paddle in their pond! 

The duo recently hatched at the zoo and their arrival has given a boost to the endangered species - with their numbers in the wild thought to be as low as just 250.

We're one of just a handful of zoos in Europe currently working with these Asian ducks and so we're rather pleased with this quaking news!

Our field programmes team is also working hard in South East Asia to try and preserve the areas in which this, and many other bird species, can be found so that they all have a better chance of survival.

I love Chester Zoo It's my favourite zoo and I enjoyed going to Chester zoo ever since I was a little boy. It's my dream to work at Chester zoo as a Zookeeper since I love animals. I am doing Animal Care to get the skills I need and I am self researching all I can about animals. I will work at Chester zoo as a Zookeeper Its my goal and I will achieve my goal.

I bookef online in the ssne day and saved £15. Good day out, couldn't fit seeing everything in, in 7.5 hours and we tried our hardest! All animals looked like they are cared for well and they do a lot of conservation in other countries too. Gift shop reasonable. Note monorail cost £12 for family all day travel, or can pay for single trips. also a boat ride is extra. Lots of animal indoor areas to go in if it rains. Indoor picnic area, but was packed as raining so sat on our picnic rug under a tree, did the job. Lots of picnic benches and toilets. Also some lovely gardens as well. Very flat but lots of walking, would need pushchair for little ones, pushchairs can go on monorail but not mobility scooters. Good play areas for the kids, quite a few cafes inc a pub. Coffee was £2, I took my own decaf teabags ( as they don't do decaf) and asked for cup of hot water which is free and used their milk and sugar. Slush puppy 2.50. Hot dog £3.50. A family of 4 can eat (sausage chips beans) for £20 after 3pm inc drinks, that was cheapest meal i could see in the restaurants. We took lots of food and kids drinks in a rucksack which saved quite a lot of money. Just needed longer to see everything!

You can tell the place has pride in what it does. The staff where very friendly, the pens where kept in a clean condition, and there was plenty to see. Was such a lovely day out. Wished we had more time to see everything!

The zoo is very huge if you are thinking about going go early as you can so you don't miss anything there are lots to see a great place to take the kids . My child's loved it you can also get a app for your phone to tell you when the animals are getting feed and other things it's amazing and I will be going again and the toilet s are clean and the staff are very nice people

I was pleasantly surprised by my visit to Chester Zoo. I was fully expecting to dislike it as I have a general negative view on caging up animals, nether the less the animals appeared well looked after and it's quite spacious. I think I enjoyed the indoor tropical parts the most as everything is living around you as opposed to be fenced off, it was also really warm in there and a welcome break from a miserable November day. It helped ease my poor view of zoos overall and I learned a fair amount whilst walking around and reading the information displayed. I'd visit again if I go back to Chester.

Poor. Absolutely poor. My family and I went on May 31st, however to our dismay no animals were out, or in for that matter. We saw no cheetahs, the back of one tiger and the back of one Lion. Yes the weather was poor to begin with, but gradually the sun came out and by 1pm I had expected, as did my family, to see many of the animals out. Unfortunately this was not the case. The pictures that I took of the orangutans also displayed my dismay at such poor conditions in that every animal looked bored. I don't expect every animal to be doing backflips from sheer joy, but what I had hoped was to see animals that were happy with their lives. I saw none that convinced me. If I were a Zoo inspector I would have closed this one down pronto. Will not be returning.

Exceeded my expectations I was very reluctant to book as I thought a day at the zoo would be great for the kids but boring for me - but we all loved it We arrived at around 11am Monday 13th April 2015. Weather was a little chilly (12°) at start but brightened up later on and became lovely and warm (17°) There is plenty to see and plenty to keep you occupied for a good 5 hours. Tigers, lions, elephants, cheetah, jaguar, giraffe, monkeys, chimpanzees. All sorts. We took sandwiches, drinks, crisps, fruit etc with us and that was enjoyed and appreciated after around 2 hours. The home made ice cream being sold was lovely and creamy (not cheap at £2 per scoop!) but it was nice. The mono rail was £2 for adults £1.50 for kids and free for under 3s. That was actually really nice and we got a very good view of the whole zoo and many animals. The waterbus was unavailable due to 'bad weather' - weather was fine though! There is a children's activity park as well but we didn't even get round to visiting that as we were so busy looking at everything else. It was very well organised with plenty of staff around to assist with all aspects of the visit. The toilets were nice and clean too. We got a very warm welcome from the staff and a very warm goodbye too. Overall a very nice experience. It was lovely being able to see all the animals and nature. Something we see little of living in the city. The butterfly house viewing is an absolute must! We were 2 adults and 2 children under 6 years.
