      Lovely shot!
    • Tim May
      Thank you very much. :)

      It is a few years since I last saw a dusky pademelon so I was delighted that this animal is now on exhibit.

      Whereabouts is this one on show, Tim? And any other developments over the past few weeks?
    • Tim May
      To answer your questions “Sooty”:-

      The pademelon is in the exhibit that housed one of the young cassowaries last year (i.e. the one that had a label for bear cuscus, spotted cuscus and brown dorcopsis).

      This animal being on show is the most significant change since my visit in March.

      I was told, though, that some other species, currently off-exhibit, will be on display within the next few weeks; consequently another visit before too long seems like a good idea.......

      Tim - did you happen to see a Tarsier when you visited? The RSCC website is now indicating that they are *supposed* to be onshow :confused:
    • Tim May
      On my visit in March I was fortunate to be taken “behind the scenes” to see a tarsier but I didn’t see one on the day this photograph was taken.

      It is excellent news if the tarsiers are now on show.

      I believe a few of the species labelled on the website as "onshow" are not actually at present - for instance the Aardwolf, Dorcopsis and Flying Squirrel.

      Are the squirrels off-show or off site?
    • TeaLovingDave
      Don't know for sure - they certainly had the taxon on-site at one point during their long closure, but not sure if they are now.
    There are no comments to display.
