Delay, Delay,yet more Delay. It seems very much like that but time just isn't on their side anymore as given her age Suci needs to have a calf pretty much now, rather than leaving it any later if her reproductive potential is not to be compromised or endangered. And they keep emphasising that part themselves, but still nothing has happened. The latest reason given is that they are waiting on Harapan to mature- at 6 years I thought he probably would be by now.

Perhaps all the publicity they put out a few months ago about mating the siblings together as a last ditch resort, was actually also an oblique attempt to encourage the Malaysians to play ball by sending them the unrelated male 'Kertam/Tam' from Borneo.

In case this hasn't already been mentioned. When I went to the zoo on Sunday, the steller's sea eagle exhibit viewing was partially closed because of nesting.

I forgot to mention it a couple of weeks ago, so thank you.

Is there any word on what hoofstock species will be going into the big field exhibit in Africa? Heard a lot of rumors, but nothing substantial other than that there would be zebras of some sort.

The page for Africa on the zoo's website currently says "gazelle, lesser kudu, and impala".

That sucks. I believe they sent a few out to Europe a few years ago as well. I wonder how those ones are doing ?

According to Zootierliste, 0.0.2 were sent to Lisbon Oceanario in 1997 and have died since.

The zoo is currently in the process of introducing "John" and "Imani" the African lions. They will be making additional blog posts as the introduction continues:

AFRICA update:
The zoo finally built the hoofstock fence (thin and rocky) on the left side of the Plains exhibit. However, it is only a few feet tall and it connects to the wild dog exhibit, which can only mean one thing... Like the lions there will be a moat that separates the dogs from the hoostock. There will also not be an observational deck viewing for the dogs as the plan says but it will be up front, glass viewing. This was really hard to explain but I do have a photo.

Other updates
1. The alligator in Manatee Springs is still off exhibit
2. Behind the camels and in the off exhibit area I saw two red pandas. For those who don't know, the panda exhibit is not even close to the camels, so I found this extremely rrare and unusual.
3. Unlike every other exhibit in Wildlife Canyon, there was red tape in front of the warty pigs.
4. World of the Insect is currently closed. The zoo is putting up new facts around every wall of the building.
5. The supposed Goldies Lorikeet in Wings of the World is actually a Red-flanked Lorieet.
6. There is another unidentified bird in WotW, but it is in the South America exhibit.
7. I heard a docent say that Saari the Bactrian Camel might give birth within a couple of weeks.
