    New thread for a new year. Hopefully a new year will bring more good news along the lines of Journey to Churchill and not sad news like the accidental deaths in the past few months.

    Does anyone know if it was Kovo or Raj who recently transferred to Cleveland Zoo? Im trying to figure out who the new cat is but all Ive found out its a male from Assiniboine.

    Kovo and Raj are both still at Assiniboine Park Zoo. Is he a bit older? Perhaps he could be a cub from the previous pair?

    The male sent to Cleveland must be Kovo or Raj. One of them was slated to go there. I just don't know which. The SSP just gave studbook numbers and not names for them so there is no way to tell which one is which.

    I have it on the best of authorities that Kovo and Raj are both still very much in Assiniboine. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding and someone said that one of them WILL be going there but their keeper assured me today that she still has both in her care.

    I was told he was at least a year old he looks to be a bit older than that though.
