      I thought they had more than that.....

      Your right Writhedhornbill! Just edited it from 2.2 to 2.3. Thanks for pointing that out :)

      Good to see the Doucs still hanging on in Europe.
    • Toddy
      Yeah, and I thought they seemed to be rather well and active during my visit. Even though their enclosure can't exactly be described as "great".

      We need Doucs in America!

      You've got Doucs in Philly!

      i've heard the doucs at cologne breed, but ultimately do it rough in the winter when the zoo is forced to feed them frozen green leaves.

      does cologne form a global partnership with US zoos and asian ones such as singapore?

      there are actually a lot more red-shanked doucs in captivity than figures suggest. a well coordinated program is a real possibility.
    • Eagle
      That would be too good to be true!
      Now Cologne has 3 doucs, they let them die out.
    • MARK
      Maybe they should send them to Singapore zoo
