The emu chicks which recently joined the family at the Australian Reptile Park now have names. From online suggestions keepers have selected the names Kath and Kim after the duo from the iconic Australian TV show. The pair are now officially the foxiest chicks in NSW.

Keepers say the names are fitting for the sassy pair who can be seen strutting around the Australian Reptile Park and chirping away.

Since we first met them the pair have moved out of the yellow footed rock wallaby enclosure and are now roaming the parks free-range area where they can interact with guests.

They have also become discerning foodies with keepers reporting that they will always eat the carrot and other yummy treats in their food before eating the healthy greens.

Park Director Tim Faulkner says “We are so excited to finally have found fitting names for our sassy little emu chicks. We all think Kath & Kim are the perfect names for our newest family members. I love watching visitors meet them for the first time, they’re full of personality!”  

 

“At the Australian Reptile Park, we love getting the community involved and it was great to see so many people sending through their suggestions.”

Mr Faulkner goes on to say “Australia is world renowned for our beautiful native wildlife that we can introduce to our visitors. Kath and Kim have been perfect little ambassadors for Emus and a great reminder for Australian’s to slow down on our roads and protect emus for their most common threat.”
