    A major new arrival, not just for the Tierpark, but for the whole of Europe is the import of 2.5 Chacoan peccaries from the USA.
    The animals arrived in Berlin, in March and came from animals from the breeding groups in Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and Sedgwick.

    Big news indeed. Hopefully the first of many European zoos with Chacoans over the coming years!

    Great news! They are very underrated animals, so I'm glad that you guys in Europe will be able to enjoy them as much as I do.
