Help Name the Baby Koalas at Hirakawa Zoo!

23.March.2019 | SPOT

Hirakawa Zoo is home to 12 koalas, the most of any other zoo in the country. Last month, one of the mothers gave birth to three baby koalas who have now crawled into her pouch.

 

The zoo is located in Hirakawacho, Kagoshima. It houses 1,000 animals of around 140 different species. Some of their most popular residents are the koalas and white tigers. The giraffe site is a popular spot too as people like to snap photos with them and Sakurajima in the background, an active volcano.

The marsupial babies are growing slowly day by day. They are weight each day to keep an eye on their health.

 

The zoo is now currently taking suggestions from the public to help name the three babies. One is male and the other two are female. Each of them were born on different days and are not related.

Head to the zoo and to the koalas for yourself and help them come up with a name. Full details on how to submit can be found below.
