The Virginia Zoo is happy to announce the addition of two new juvenile White Rhinos! Bora and Zina arrived last weekend from the Singapore Zoo and will take residence in the zoo’s Africa-Okavango Delta exhibit.
Both female rhinos, Bora and Zina were born at the Singapore Zoo in 2013. They are part of the Species Survival Plan and will be paired with a male White Rhino who will arrive later this year.
Visitors to the Virginia Zoo will not yet be able to see the rhinos on exhibit but will have access to the exhibit in the near future. The new rhinos have a 30-day quarantine period in which they will be under observation by our Veterinarian, Vet Techs and Zoo Keepers to make sure they are healthy and happy.
