They are around in the private trade.
In any public aquariums? I would love to see them
Possibly, but given how short-lived the species is (and how only people like us would notice them) they quite possibly come and go without ever being reported.
For instance, I know the SeaLife in Berlin kept the species in April 2014, but the species was gone again not long thereafter - had two Zoochatters not happened to visit the collection when they did, none of us would have known.
besides belugas, are their any facilities that have held species of whales?
I learned that Seaworld San Diego held a grey whale for a short period of time.
I Certainly would notice them! They are such a cool species!
Used to be kept at Berlin. Not sure when though.
They were kept at Berlin from 1907-1919. They were kept at Hamburg Bird park (now closed) in 1906. They were also kept in London in 1874 and again from 1914-1919.
Indus river dolphin? Or really any Asian dolphin.
A Baiji named Qui Qui was kept in a Chinese aquarium for several years. I believe freshwater Finless Porpoises are kept in some Asian aquariums, as well.
The Baiji is extinct, and I know Finless porpoises are kept in captivity.
The Wonderpus also occasionally seen in the private trade, and at least Monterey Bay Aquarium has exhibited them.
Wow I almost forgot! Thanks for reminding me! I probably didn't remember they had them since My only visit to the Monterrey bay aquarium was a while ago.
They only had Wonderpus for a short time during the early months of Tentacles I believe. So you may not have even seen it.
Apologies for being pedantic but these dates, which I assume came from Zootierliste, don't exactly match the details in the ZSL records.
According to the Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London London Zoo's first limpkin arrived on 6th October 1875 (not 1874) and died the following day.
Another individual arrived 4th July 1914; this bird lived for a "few months".
Sea Life Busan in South Korea should.
ZTL is indeed incorrect for the first bird, but as far as the second bird is concerned, Amur Leopard simply invented a date range from the top of his head it seems as all ZTL says in that regard is "1914 - ???"
AHHHHH wish I knew about this when I went to Costa Rica in 2014!! Who knows if they had Alston's Mouse Opossum at the time...but ARGGG what if they did haha!?
Edit: ahh I see it's a list of what has ever been cared for there. Now I feel a little better, unless he was caring for an Alston's at the exact time I was there haha.
Separate names with a comma.
