    Don’t believe this has been mentioned elsewhere but Altina recently received two female Waterbuck from Monarto Zoo.

    Both the Red Pandas are there.

    I was there a bit over a week ago at the end of the school holidays. It was very busy and I think they said they had about 250 visitors do the tour that day.

    The baby Ring Tailed Lemur was jumping around and quite active.
    The male Servile was not cooperative and would not come over for his treat. He was only partially visible behind a log in the back of the enclosure. They have a young female they plan to pair him with, but she was in the other enclosure and we could not see her.
    The two female Zebras are separate from the males as they are both pregnant.

    Next time I go my kids want to do the Meirkat experience and go in with them as that looked good. The visitor in there doing the Meirkat experience while we were there had a Meirkat sitting on her shoulder to get a better view for predators.
