Givskud Zoo - Pygmy hippo exhibit

Part of the right side of the exhibit for pygmy hippotamus (Choeropsis liberiensis liberiensis) in Givskud Zoo. The whole exhibit is divided in two parts with a visitor walkway in between. Both parts feature grassy land areas, tress and a large pool + small mud hole. The marabou storks (Leptoptilos crumeniferus) were kept behind the temporary fence because the zoo recently stopped clipping their wings in preparation for sending them to Dresden Zoo where they now live in an aviary. The exhibit opened in 1998 as part of the new African area around P2 for visitors to experience on foot. Originally this exhibit also featured marabou stork (Leptoptilos crumeniferus) but since Givskud Zoo no longer wants to keep pioned birds, they moved out in 2012. July 2012
