    The mouse lemurs are no longer on display in Moonlight World and no longer labeled. The brown rats have also gone and their little cellar is boarded up.
    The bamboo lemurs have an infant that's about a week old.
    Infant Bourret's box turtle Cuora bourreti and keeled box turtle C. mouhotii are on display in the reptile nursery.
    I can't finish without a little invertebrate news so here here it is... Giant South American Grasshoppers Tropidacrius collaris are now on display in Bug World and they're pretty big!

    One thing I love about Bristol Zoo is that there's often a nice surprise around the gardens awaiting discovery, so here I stand listening to the tickling piano music from the college next-door looking at European Hoopoe, new to the collection.

    The hoopoe head just started vocalising, even better than the piano music.
