    That's sad too - like the Bobcat, the last one in Australasia!

    When did she die?

    Willowbank (in Christchurch) received four male Capybara last week, which had been bred at Auckland Zoo.

    Apologies if this is old news. I have searched and can't find it mentioned anywhere

    Hamilton Zoo now has a female Cape Porcupine on display. Her name is Ingozi (Born May 2017). I'm assuming she's from Monarto unless they've (quietly) done a fresh import from Europe/USA.

    Hamilton are also receiving 4.0 Nyala from Auckland today
