Unusual delivery in time for Easter.
Staff at the centre only took delivery of a breeding pair of the animals from Bristol Zoo two weeks ago and were shocked when they discovered that one had given birth.
It appears staff at Bristol were unaware when they shipped off the animals that one of them was pregnant.
Keeper Colin Parker said: "We couldn't believe it, no-one was expecting it. We just went in on the morning and there it was. It's perfect timing really because we've just opened our doors for the summer season, so it'll be something for everyone to come and see." Staff are remaining cautious about the baby's prospects as males have been known to kill them if they are dropped by the mothers. But so far there has been little trouble and new mother Linta seems to be settling down well with no problems from father Kibby..
