Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland has given names to the two European forest reindeers which were born at the park during May.
The names selected for them were Regnar and Solen which are the Swedish words for rain and sun respectively.
Keith Gilchrist, animal collection manager at Highland Wildlife Park explained, “Our two boys are doing well and have been named in keeping with our weather theme following on from the birth of Tuuli last year, whose name means wind in Finnish.”
“Both boys share the same dad, Sven. With Regnar being born to mum Freya and Solen to mum Sahti,” added Gilchrist.
Highland Wildlife Park has reopened after a 3 month closure due to Covid-19. This allows visitors to go to the park and meet the young reindeers in person. There are some safety measures in place to ensure that the public is kept safe while at the zoo.“
We are all really excited about our new additions and delighted to be able to welcome visitors back to meet them,” finished Gilchrist.
