Greater rheas


Introducing ‘Chip’ and ‘Dip’

August 16, 2023 | 1 minute read

Exciting news! We are thrilled to welcome two female greater rheas, two-year-old ‘Chip’ (white colouring) and six-year-old ‘Dip’ (gray colouring), from Parc Safari to their new home.

Chip and Dip have been getting settled into their new home in the South America zone. Our Animal Care, Health & Welfare team will be rotating access to the courtyard for the rheas and alpacas until the rheas are comfortable in their new surroundings and are ready to share a mixed species habitat.

In other rhea news, we also bid a fond farewell to our male greater rhea, ‘Tatu’, as he moved on to new adventures!
