      Can you believe they tried to introduce these to australia! in the wild that is!
    • Zooish
      Why would they wanna do that?!

      to control the snakes, but as funny as the story is, no one knew how to sex them, so they just put them all in a pen and hoped for the best. they bred none.

      Do they still have Secretary Birds? I saw no sign of these when I was there.

      They're kept off-show now. The new birds of prey show line-up doesn't include them anymore, so they can only be seen during behind-the-scenes visits.

      WRS sure has a lot of sp[ecies off-display don't they!

      Were these ever displayed, or just part of the birds of prey show?

      I saw them in the bird of prey aviaries back in...2006? Maybe later. I don't recall properly.
    • Zooish
      Chlidonias' right, they were displayed in the birds of prey aviaries sometime between 2006 and 2009.

      A lot of the birds of prey are kept off-display.
    There are no comments to display.
