    Rothschild's mynah have arrived and installed in a newly refurbished aviary.

    I managed to see the stork and Swinhoe's chicks (so sweet) yesterday but unfortunately missed the baby Red bellied lemur - the weather was awful and they stayed indoors in a lemur ball :) I'm hoping to see it when I visit again tomorrow

    A couple of updates from my visit today:
    -Cusimanse are now at the zoo and currently in an enclosure along the walls by the bear enclosure. The plan is to move them into the old Striped Skunk enclosure (which I assume have left the centre).
    -Some posts have been erected in the Mouflon enclosure. I only saw one Mouflon.
    -The new brown bears are living with the elderly resident female who lost her partner last year.
    -The ASCO are no longer kept but are planned to be bought back in the same enclosure.
    -1:1 Lar Gibbon have arrived from a zoo in France. They are being quarantined in an enclosure by the entrance.
    Lovely little place, I will post a full review once I get round to finishing the HWP review :)

    0:1 Amur Leopard Cat called 'Jurate' has arrived. This will presumably be the individual from the recently closed Galloway Wildlife Park.

    Is this Belfast's entire group and they have now gone out of them? I somehow think maybe the answer is yes...

    Any reasoning why Belfast Zoo ended its romance with lion-tailed macaque?

    Could it be because they spent more time in Belfast than actually in their enclosure? :p

    I'm looking forward to visiting this park. Do they still have Wolves as they aren't listed on the website for some reason.
