    Hello all,

    I was recently on Zootierliste (thanks to Zoogiraffe) and I noticed that it said Welsh Mountain Zoo has European Souslik? Is this true, as I did not see them when I visited recently? Are they off show? Did they once hold them yet not know and Zootierliste is out of date?

    Little information please!

    Thanks, Paix

    The Norfolk Wildlife Park used to hold a group of these until about the mid-nineties.
