"We're so excited today to announce very special news at Australia Zoo. We have a brand new baby rhino born on May 4. He weighed a whopping 70kg and is now getting close to 100kg - so we're very proud of that,' said Terri.

The Australia 'Zoo' is more of a sanctuary than an actual 'zoo' where animals are mistreated and kept in cages!!

Yes 'zoo' is definitely the wrong word to describe this haven!

Wonderful news & how very beautiful Bindi is!

The baby rhino is soooo cute! And soon, a precious baby giraffe will be born too! How proud Steve Irwin would have been of his dedicated family, and the vision which he set forth to save very endangered African animals is becoming a reality at this incredible zoo or more properly called a sanctuary- because it resembles the wild much more than a zoo as Steve Irwin wanted it that way! Thank you so much Barb for updating us on this wonderful news and to remind us that Steve Irwin who was such a champion for wildlife conservation's incredible work still continues to march on through so many of his fans and his wonderful family! I see so much of Steve Irwin in his wife, Bindi, and Robert... and in you to Barb which keeps his flame burning bright! Bless you!

Thanks, it was nice seeing the family of Steve Irwin and to see how their zoo has progressed so nicely. The kids sure look like their Dad. Especially the son. The girl is growing into a pretty young lady.
