    Finally the baby tigers are making their debut...their names are Kanu, Hati and Bali, which mean strength, power & Gold, or something similar, (the names are supposed to be the 3 main characteristics of a tiger)

    Unfortunately, the article says their mother is an albino individual (I dont know why poeple dont understand that a white tiger is different from being albino)

    Sorry for not having the article in english, but you can look at the pictures, it is about the andean bear cub which was born on january, It is the second bear that has been born from the actual pair, the other cub "Manoba" is held at the Jaime Duque Zoo

    On thursday last week (22nd of january) the new Australia outback exhibit was inaugurated. The exhibit is an immersion exhibit that resembles an old farm in the outback. Although I have not visited (I plan to do it when I travel back to Colombia) I have been quite updated with the zoo news.

    The exhibit is actually inhabited by Red kangaroos , Red-necked wallabies, Cacatua alba & moluccensis, Emus, bearded dragons, Budgerigards, Laughing kookaburras & Cockatiels. There are also black swans in the lake in front of the entrance to the exhibit. Although they have not yet arrived Perenties and lorikeets (not sure which species) will be part of the exhibit, making Cali the only zoo in LatinAmerica with perenties.

    The exhibit theme is water management and how to take care of it. Hopefully I will be able to get some pictures to upload soon.

    For now some pictures can be seen here:
