When you look below the video and see the description, it says "Glass is installed for the new Lion Exhibit that is part of Africa the largest exhibit ever built at the Cincinnati Zoo."

I just realised I forgot to answer this before. I don't know much but the zoo has had them for over twenty years and they used to breed them. If they only have one left then I guess that is just the remnant after the population petered out or was dispersed. I couldn't find out how they got them but I'd guess it may have been part of a research programme on the species (e.g. possibly someone collected specimens and brought them back to America for study in a captive/lab situation).

Thanks a lot for the information ! If they succesfully bred them, this must have been the World First Breeding with this species ! Do you know if there is any publish information about it ?

I don't know about that, but there are bare records in the International Zoo Yearbooks' listings (e.g. six bred in 1990 [from memory])

The first of a pair of hormone injections to be given to the female polar bear Berit was successfully given yesterday. The second will be given on Monday:

Apparently there is at least one two-toed amphiuma back on exhibit.

She's probably just temporarily off display until the Reptile House is renovated.

A baby gorilla born to a gorilla on loan from Cincy to Gladys Porter will be moving to Cincinnati because the mother showed a lack of maternal interest in the infant.

Will it be hand-reared by keepers and eventually become part of Jomo's group? Or will one of the females become a surrogate?

Very sad news as Cincinnati announce they have had to put the male Sumatran rhino 'Ipuh' down.
