Sorry, to get back to 2010. Any idea which giraffe this was.
As far as I now Wroclaw maintained only hybrids (males Selim, Safi und female Barborka).

Both the males mentioned were transferred to Katowice / Chorzowie in June 2009. This left only the female Barborka ...

Do you know what happened to her and any idea on the Rothschild's individual?

I think Basia has been sent to Poznań (Basia it's probably diminutive form of Barborka). In "Zoo story" (serial about ZOO Wrocław) was transport of giraffe called Basia. They said she is the last Bringo giraffe in zoo and she will join to herd of her subspecies in Poznań.

Basia (Barborka) was not a pure Baringo but a hybrid. She indeed went to Poznan where she died after a year or so. Now Wroclaw holds only pure reticulata - male from Copenhagen and two females from Frankfurt as well as one from Nurnberg. There is also a baby female born this spring and hand-raised. She is already running together with the group.

Thanks for clearing this up. It has been most helpful.

As to the giraffe birth at Wroclaw.
Here is the link to her birth announcement:
http://www.gazetawroclawska.pl/artyk...eria,id,t.html

It is a major achievement to breed pure-breds and reticulata to that.
(which are far rarer in the wild than previously thought + not so common in zoos worldwide).

Has it been confirmed where the two new bull Indian Rhinos are coming from? I know they're a few bulls which 'could' be contenders for Wroclaw's new Rhinos.

Rhinos are coming from Tierpark Berlin and CERZA Lisieux.
Is the 2nd October sure date of opening? ZOO Wrocław organize contest that winners can get invitations for Indian Rhino's House opening. The contest is finishing on 3rd October. So, I think it cannot be 2nd.
