There is now a southern three-banded armadillo in the vampire bat exhibit.

Can't say that I would have necessarily expected for an armadillo to turn up in the vampire bat enclosure, but with the enclosure being so large, the addition of the armadillo will add more activity and appeal to the enclosure.

It is nice to see the addition of several new species to the South American aviary. That is one thing I like about Wings of the World; you never know what you are going to see when you go in.

In addition to school programs, during the winter the cheetahs are run as much as possible. Here is a short article with pictures of the winter cheetah runs:

Through out the ZOOlympics the zoo will be posting daily trivia questions about what animals would win gold medals for things like drinking the most water in one sitting and taking the longest to mature. Today's question is what animal would win gold for the longest pregnancy. Wouldn't that be a great way to reveal some very special, long awaited news? If only...

The tayra and her baby were out today and for a few weeks now the fennec fox exhibit has been covered and closed. I have also not seen the male lar gibbon this whole summer.

Thank you for another update Moebelle. I will be finally be heading out to the zoo on Monday, and I am very excited to check out all of the new additions.

I wonder what exactly is going on with the fennec fox enclosure? Kits perhaps, new animals, or maybe a renovation? I will see if I can and see if I find anything out when I visit on Monday.
