Lambs Born at Queens Zoo

As the borough welcomed in spring, the Queens Zoo welcomed four baby lambs – two males and two females. The baby Jacob’s four-horned lambs were born at the end of March. The lambs are doing well, zookeepers said, and have been very active.
The male lambs have been named Phineus and Ferb. Suggestions for names for the still-unnamed female lambs were taken online at the zoo’s web site.
The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy has listed Jacob’s sheep as being threatened. The babies at the Queens Zoo were born as part of a cooperative breeding program.
Located at 53-51 111th Street in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, the Queens Zoo is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekends.
