Babirusa, Singapore Zoo

Bachelor herd of Babirusa at the Singapore Zoo. IN a few days, it would be the Chinese New Year, and the zodiac animal this year is the pig! So its considered auspicious to see a pig (or any species of suid for that matter).

      How many do you have?
    • Zooish
      We have 18 in total, divided into 3 herds: 5 young males at the Zoo; 4 old males at Night Safari; 9 females at Night Safari.

      This was done to stop breeding as they have been thriving a little too well.

      My bad, one of the old males passed on. 17 left.
    • Writhedhornbill
      Will you breed from them in the future?
    • Zooish
      We need new bloodlines. The breeding program will definitely continue in the future as this species has been earmarked for the long-term collection plan.
