Duisburg Zoo - Rio Negro (tamandua)

The exhibit for tamanduas inside the Rio Negro tropical house in Duisburg Zoo, Germany. A very nice little exhibit with lots of branches and plants. The exhibit is open-topped and the tamanduas are kept in with some electric fence that is very cleverly hidden and hardly noticeable unless you look for it. This means that the free-ranging golden-handed tamarins and birds have access to this exhibit as well without the tamanduas leaving it. Rio Negro was built in 2005 and houses animals from the Rio Negro area in tropical South America. The main attraction in here is the last boto (Amazonian river dolphin) outside of South America. The structure is 900 sqm (0.22 acres) in size and 11 meters (36 ft.) tall. Rio Negro is a beautiful display and one of the best exhibits in Duisburg Zoo and the boto is an absolutely fascinating creature. July 2009
