    The biggest development at Beauval this year is an extension to the current African area to include Common Hippos for the first time. This morning after several months of construction and a lot of hard work the first Hippo finally arrived. Young male, Kvido came from Ostrava. Further Hippos are expected in the coming weeks

    Can anybody confirm the arrival of the female pygmy hippo"Lani"from Basle Zoo, and does the zoo already has a male ? So I hope, its true and Beauval is one of the few european zoo with both hippo species, elephants and two rhino species.

    A common hippo arrived from Basel as far as I am aware, not a pygmy hippo...

    Our friends at Zoonaute have mentioned that African Elephant, N'Dala is due to undergo AI treatment this week. If successful this will be the 2nd birth for N'Dala following the arrival of Rungwe in 2012

    Something for TLD to remove from his 'species lost in Europe' thread.

    Sure they did not have some already (BTW: Beauval is involved in Djibouti project - rehabiliation Djibouti wildlife, including beisa and Somali wild ass and Grevy's zebra)?

    What is your source?

    For 2017 the zoo will be building new enclosures for lions and African hunting dog as well as building an extension to the African elephant paddock.

    @Kifaru Bwana: Beauval has indeed Beisas already. I have seen them in person 10 days ago.

    @Kiang: In which direction they will extend the African elephant paddock (by the way: there are two outdoor exhibits)
