I heard from a zoo employee yesterday that Capybaras are coming to Auckland Zoo. At this point they are unaware of a date. I am not too sure where they are coming from although there are rumours they might be coming from Adelaide Zoo (some of their babies I'm guessing). They will live in the current squirrel monkey enclosure in the rainforest together with the squirrel monkeys. Behind the scenes, a new den area is being constructed for them (I have a photo of it but don't know if I should post it). To me, this is very exciting news! I have always loved Capybaras. Unfortunately I won't get to see them since I'm moving to Europe next month but it is exciting.
