Thanks for the link. A very interesting interview with Terri Roth, which updates the current situation for me. Most interesting and she seems quite outspoken now about Indonesia's refusal to send them any more animals- presumably born out of frustration with the current situation.

From this it seems Ipuh hasn't been able to actually successfully mate Suci as she tires him out beforehand during the 'courtship' phase, and so they have abandoned that in favour of attempting AI, from the only captive male unrelated to her, which is Kertam, the one in Borneo.

Yes, it seems they are now going to attempt AI on her, from the only captive male unrelated to her, Kertam, the one in Borneo.
As said from fellow member Kudu21, no. Ipuh is pretty old and has little energy while Suci is only 8 and is very eccentric so they did not mate properly.

Thanks. I've read the interview in the newsletter(thanks for link) with Terri Roth now and that does fully explain the current situation- see my above post which I changed.

Thanks to Moebelle for answering the question. Things have just popped up here recently, and I didn't have the time to do it myself!

In other news, a hooded merganser chick has hatched recently.

Glad to help By the why I saw the changes to the zoo and it felt weird seeing the gliders in it's new exhibit. I was also disappointed on seeing that there were no changes to that area except for the species. I felt bad for the kingfisher being in a place that is 10 times smaller than it's original home. By the way with the harp wire situation, I did notice that the wires were thinner than the last time I saw so maybe they did change it. Thanks for the bongo info, that is so exciting! Lastly I am going to the zoo every Tuesday this summer and I will get many, many pictures of Savanna

Thane Maynard talks about the zoo's "wonder-foal" addition, Savanna the Grevy's zebra foal.

The zoo's scientists perform the first artificial insemination of captive polar bears at the Seneca Park Zoo.

The tiger yard looks great! And it has a great view too.

Aww, that's a shame. I was wondering why it was impossible to see the other cat.

I passed by the nursery and here's the current list of animals.

Don and Tom
1 bat-eared fox and Blakely, the domestic show dog
Lucy
Adams and Rocko and Jaz in the same exhibit

I also got a glimpse of the snow leopard exhibit and it is super-looking. People won't complain about it now. Also the path between Monkey Island and to Night Hunters is closed because the zoo is adding an entrance to Cat Canyon.

I hate to ask but what are these animals?
As you can probably gather, I'm not from Cincy, not familiar with the nursery and am intrigued...

I wouldn't blame even if you didn't tell me to Adams is a Parma wallaby that was born in 2009. Don and Tom are Bennett's wallabies that were born in September 2011. Rocko and Jaz are also Bennett's wallabies that were born in 2007-8(?). Lucy is a bearcat that was born in 2007. She is the Cincinnati Bearcat football team's mascot.

Thanks for that, my curiosity has been satisfied now.
I was just worried that I may be missing out on some unusual species hand-rearing!
Turns out they're wallabies... And a binturong! Which is a lot more impressive in my eyes.
