Sounds like it's shaping up to be a great year for you Moebelle. Who knows what else is expected in the coming months to make the summer even more enjoyable for you?

Yes without a doubt! Even if there were no babies and the upcoming Phase 4 of Africa but after 5 straight years of volunteering at the zoo, it finally paid off and I now finally have a real paying job in the landscaping department.

Does Cincinnati have a no posting policy for its staff like many of the collections do in the UK?

The zoo has welcomed a fishing cat kitten that was conceived through fixed-time artificial insemination - the first time this has been done in a non-domestic cat; the fishing cat also makes the fifth cat species the zoo has produced kittens with through oviductal artificial insemination:

The AI work being done is very interesting. It would be very benefical in preventing female cats from being killed by the males, as we have recently seen in a number of places during mating or introductions. And doing this zoos could even increase genetic diversity by mixing several males sperm in and hoping for litters with a variety of fathers. The possiblities could be enromous.

Little Gladys has finally been introduced to all of the zoos gorillas including Jomo. It will be fun for her to have another baby to play with in a couple of months and it will be good for Asha and Anju to get some baby experience before their own babies come.

Changes:

Reptile House:
-The Ornate Monitor is now back in where the Crocodile Monitor was.

Eagle Eyrie:
-The viewing cage to the Stellar's Sea Eagle exhibit was taken off and it no longer seems that the "Mother is Nesting".

World of the Insect
-There are two new species displayed, one is called a Zophobas Darkling Beetle, and the Carolina Mantis.
-The "What Eats Insects" was changed to "Insects as Food"
-All the newly renovated water insect tanks are finished but there are no new species.
-There was a sign on the Butterfly Aviary door saying, "The Butterfly Aviary will be closed for about two weeks beginning April 7 to replace the glass ceiling panels."

Elephant Reserve
-There are new identification signs (I have a picture)

Gibbon Islands
-There are new entrance signs (I have a picture)

Rhino Reserve
-Two of the only trees in the Zebra exhibit were cut down. Now there is no longer shade created by foliage.
