Curious Lory, Jurong BirdPark

There's no place these curious lories won't explore. Within the Lory Loft exhibit, they've damaged water hoses, display shelves and denuded almost all the eucalyptus, golden penda and bottlebrush trees that were planted. Only hardier species and local weeds survive now.

      What species is it?

      That looks like a little red molluncan to me Jonothan

      Thanks. Is that EOS BORNEA or something like that?
    • ZYBen
      think so
    • Zooish
      Yup, its Eos bornea (Red Lory)

      I can't help myself but I have to think about Whac-A-Mole here :D

      Lory Loft is one of the most popular exhibits at Jurong, and they recently added eclectus (they look like polychloros to me), a nice adition IMO.
      But I hope the new management has plans to go into the rarer lory species, as currently Jurong still has mostly the common species.
      It would be nice to see some of the smaller Charmosyna and Psitteuteles species.

      do you mean in the Lory Loft? I would prefer they didn't have rarer lories in there! But if you mean in separate aviaries then yes I agree.
