⚡️HOGWARTS WARTHOGS⚡️
We’re naming a new trio of tiny warthogs after Harry Potter characters!

Any suggestions for The Sorting Hat? Harry Trotter? Dumbleboar? Hogrid?

These four fluffy yellow #ducklings are some of the rarest in the world.

Experts fear there may be as few as 350 white-winged #ducks left on the planet making these little guys very, very special indeed...

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, #capybara pups!

This lot look like they’re going to be quite the handful for new mums Lochley and Lilly.

Twin Visayan warty pigs - a species listed by conservationists as critically endangered - have been born at the zoo.

Recent estimates suggests just 200 warty pigs are left in their native habitat in the Visayan Islands in the central Philippines - making them the rarest of all wild pigs.

The decline of the species is blamed mostly on habitat loss and hunting.

Our new piglets are among the first animals to be born in our new Islands habitat – the largest development in UK zoo history.

A five-day-old Sulawesi crested macaque clings to first-time mum Camilla.

Camilla's baby is an important addition to the European breeding programme for the critically endangered species of monkey.

The species is highly threatened with extinction in the wild, with fewer than 5,000 estimated to remain on its native island of Sulawesi due to large scale habitat loss and illegal poaching.

Our new arrival increases the number of Sulawesi crested macaques living in our new Islands habitat – the biggest development in the history of UK zoos - to 16.

Capybara mum Lochley has given birth to four pups!

Zookeepers spotted Lochley giving birth to her first two youngsters at around 7:30am this morning with the third and fourth members of her new quartet arriving just before 11am, in front of amazed visitors.

Sometimes referred to as the giant guinea pig, the capybara comes from South America and can grow up to 1.5m (4.9ft) in length.

Excellent day out and great value for the family or couples alike. Chester Zoo has a breeding program for endangered animals, so you will always see some baby animals, which - lets face it - are cute. Facilities are good, lots of volunteers and staff to advise or guide you and the new 'Islands' area is very scenic indeed, with a free boat ride around the facility. Food is expensive for what it is, as is all these venues. However essential drinks on a warm day are reasonable. Excellent large car park or catch the no1 bus from Chester by the Cathedral bus terminus.

Absolutely amazing. So many exhibits with plenty of information. Very well run and well maintained. Maybe a bit too big for small children to see everything in one day and I reckon they will struggle with the amount of walking. Only real negative is cost of food and drinks are insanely high. I recommend bringing a packed lunch, your own lollies and a 2L bottle of something to drink otherwise costs can very easily get out of control.

Wonderful zoo. So many animals to see. Love that they do their best to enrich the animals environment. On a hot day islands almost feels like the real thing

What a wonderful collection of animals. I especially liked the elephants near the entrance to the zoo, and the chimpanzees which are unfortunately still housed in a rather old enclosure; perhaps they're more comfortable in what they're used to? Another highlight are the bats, where they fly right next to your head... in the dark! The Zoo loses a star because of the overcharging on food in the restaurants. Why, oh why would they offer fairly standard food and then fleece you at the till? It just adds a sour note to the day. Take a picnic.

Brilliant zoo and a great day out. The Zoo is always very clean and tidy and the staff generally are very helpful and friendly. Most of the animals look very well cared for and happy and we always get good views. We go to Chester Zoo every year and still love it. It would most definitely be a 5-Star review if it weren't for the price. Going to the Zoo is a VERY expensive day out. Not only on entrance fee, but also on snacks and drinks once inside...take your own sarnies!

Its a brilliant zoo, the staff are Fantastic very helpful. The costs of cafe and shops are to be expected for a zoo/ themepark type place the car park is free the islands are ok and there is plenty animals to see. Adoption is fairly priced if thats for you and membership is well worth the cost! Unlimited access to the zoo and 20% discounts across the zoo.
