    It is also probably a first recent export from South America.

    It would be nice if the European population and EAZA/EEP would be able to get new bloodlines from Santiago de Chile zoo (or one of the other Chilean / Argentinian holders of Southern pudus. Given that Japan can import it is not impossible to get it sorted for Europe (via Frankfurt or Czech Republic)!!!

    Ungulate imports are very difficult for Europe and even though more options are available I do not see any opportunities for imports from South America.

    The reason I mentioned Frankfurt is because this quarantaine facility is the only one able to accept outside EU imports from countries and regions not complying with European legislation.

    It has actually nothing to do with the quarantine facilities in Europe but the ones outside Europe that prevent the imports.

    Santiago zoo had recieved a pair of styan´s red panda from a japanese zoo, so the pudus were most likely part of an exchange. Santiago recieved the first red pandas in Chile and Japan recieves the first pudus in that country. Good for both.
