Frankfurt Zoo has stopped keeping clouded leopards and sent away the breeding pair with the last young to Ekilstuna,sweden. That's unbelivable, because the formely director needed a few years to get them from Howletts and has build a very good and expensive exhibit for the clouded leopards in the"Cat-Jungle Southeast Asia". In 2006 they bred for the first time, but the babies died, as like as the next litter in 2007. Now they have the third litter and raised successfully one young. The reason for this is, because the clouded leopards were invisable for the zoo vistors, they never could see them ! Of course, they are noctornal animals, but the visitors didn't care about them, they are only interested in tigers and lions, and both species can be seen in the same house. The new zoodirector wants to protect endangerd wildlife, is this the right way,protecting animals, to give away a highly endangerd species, which has just start breeding ? And if " invisable"animals are now a reason to gave up keeping them, a lot of more species has to leave the Frankfurt Zoo, the Tree kangaroos,the Aye-Aye's and Kiwis, a lot of reptiles, all these are species, which are not easy to see them, because the vistors are not looking hard enough for them, just a few seconds, and if they don't see an animal in the exhibit, they went to the next enclosure. " Oh, it's nothing inside here". Everyone of us knows that very good. I can't understand that. Now the fossas will move into the clouded leopard exhbit, because they are better to see,Ha,ha. 1. Fossas are not more active at day as the clouded leopards. 2. They are to boring for the vistors 3. Do they came from southeast asia ? I've heared, they are just for a while in this exhibit, until the zoo found another species for the exhibit, but what species ? The exhibit is to small for leopards, and all the small cats from southeast asia are hard to get or nocturnal.... So maybe they should keep a primate species in the exhibit. Douc langurs ?
