Rhino calves at Cotswold Wildlife Park have been given a Christmas treat.

A king-sized Christmas pudding enrichment ball crafted by senior keeper Jenni was given to Queenie, Molly and D'ora.

The pudding ball is part of the park's annual Christmas enrichments.

While Queenie and her half-sister Molly were intrigued by the oversized treat while D'ora showed less enthusiasm, choosing instead to retreat.

Queenie shares a bond with royalty, being named in honour of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her Platinum Jubilee.

Her and her half-sister, both two years old, are two of eight white rhinos residing in the Park, which welcomed two new calves this year.

Elsewhere at the park, Southern Tamanduas Tito and Orinoco had their share of seasonal fun, exploring senior keeper Hayley's Christmas sack filled with mealworms.

The Park's new pair of Wolverines, Bigfoot and Tik, demolished their Christmas sack, covered with spices nutmeg and cinnamon and filled with sprats, using their teeth and claws to rip through the sack.

Section head of primates, small mammals and birds, Natalie Horner said: "Christmas time at the Park and the keepers are busy creating seasonal treats for the animals.

"All of our enclosures are designed to provide lots of natural, environmental enrichment but at this time of year, we always like to treat our animals to fun Christmas-related enrichment too.

"These enrichments stimulate natural behaviours for the animals and provide a great spectacle for visitors too."

Ms Horner added: "A keepers job doesn't stop for Christmas Day.

"Our animals are still here, and so are we, making sure they have food and water, and the enclosures are nice and clean.

"The Park is closed to visitors on Christmas Day so keepers tend to work a shorter day than usual so we can make sure we’re home in time for our own Christmas dinner.

"It’s always a fun atmosphere with everyone in high spirits.

"There is usually plenty of cake, biscuits and chocolates to keep us going but the main thing is knowing our animals are well looked after on one of the happiest days of the year."

The park's Christmas moments were captured in stunning detail by award-winning Oxfordshire photographer and Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society Philip Joyce.

Cotswold Wildlife Park is set in 160 acres of parkland and is home to 1,500 across 250 different species.
