      Do you remember what small cat species (36 and 37 on map) they were working with when you were there, Hix?

      I remember seeing the Horses there- they looked totally out of place in Jersey's collection- I don't think they stayed too long. The Maned Wolves were far more in keeping.

      They would still have been breeding Servals.

      Interestingly, sixteen of the taxa mentioned on this map are no longer there.

      Which were the small cats kept?
    • Hix
      The only felines I remember at Jersey were Servals, Snow Leopards and Cheetahs.

      The P horses stayed longer than you think, they were still in the collection in 1996. A bachelor group of 2 or 3. Moved into the centre of the zoo (next to Sulawesi macaques) where they were replaced by maned wolf.

      I believe there were originally three horses. When the Trust decided to go out of the species, the two survivors went to a rescue centre in England, I think only one survived the journey.
    • Onychorhynchus coronatus
      Interesting to see that they once kept hutias, does anyone remember what species this was that was kept ?
