      How did you get to go off show?
      Why is the giant Coua off show?
      Do any other zoos keep it?

      To go off-show is very easy - you can arrange a tour for 50 euros; splitting it ten ways as we did meant just over an hour of backstage tour with some incredible birds for 5 euros apiece. Bargain! We saw the rearing area, incubator room and some of the breeding areas; unfortunately we weren't able to visit the off-show tropical house where we presume almost all the birds of paradise and the Sickle-billed Vangas are, but you can't have it all.

      The giant couas were breeding off-show; we saw a chick in the rearing area. This species was not on show in the park, though the Blue and Crested Couas were. I don't know if anywhere else keeps them.
