Press article about the Red-handed Tamarins: Exciting new arrivals at Darling Downs Zoo
DDZ have just been updated on Google maps, Loving the new large enclosures!
Another pair of common Marmoset twins have been born followed by a pair of twin Agouti babies. Also the Lioness Xena has had her 20th Birthday!
Todays news another baby Grants zebra has been born making this the 3rd from the three females plus the two males that were imported by the zoo. (Five others from the ten went to other holders in the country)
News from Darling Downs website is the resently brought adjacent property of 120 acres most of which will be developed into the zoos Endangered African precinct. Which will bring the total zoo land size to 172 acres, New species which will be added are Nyala Bongo and Rhinos!!!!
Also to add the zoos herd of (now) ten Zebra, camels, Addax and two prides on lions will be moving across to the new area when finished. I believe the Lions will be going up onto the wooded hill in much larger enclosures!
Darling Downs Zoo has had a string of births; Blackbuck, Common Marmoset, Common Wombat, Red Kangaroo, the recent zebra foal and the most interesting news IMO is that the Red-handed Tamarins receive a mention that they have bred successfully.
Darling Downs Zoo
that’s amazing that they have bred their red handed tamarins, I hope it’s successful
Here’s a video further showing a few of the recent births.
Most excitingly, the video also shows that they have successfully bred Australian Grass Owl!
Darling Downs Zoo
Some pics of them now up on their FB site!
Yet another baby Zebra foal born at the zoo to second time mother Zavannah, I believe this is now there 4th baby from the 3 US import mares. Also a filly, they are doing so well with them. It will be a wondeful sight when the herd moves over to the huge African Safari exhibit when its completed!
Looks like there’s a mysterious new arrival that has been flown in to DDZ, could this be the long awaited Sri Lankan leopard?
I find the zoo usually gets a new species right before the holidays, I was anticipating an arrival.
Appears the new arrival is being fed greens in the pic,LOL
Look closely- the 'greenery' is a motif on a container(?) in the background, nothing to do with the crate...
Yep I was joking, ( hence the LOL) the animal in the crate does in fact eat greens,Lol
Oh, right, I understand now... So what is in the crate, any idea?
