    Le Cornelle never says new information about new animals, so I don't know

    Good news from Le Cornelle, "Kusini" is doing well. He is staying indoor for some days now for settling in - next to their female rhino. When the weather is better he will be allowed to get familiar with the new built outdoor enclosure. As soon as I get photos I will post them. :D

    It seems Le Cornelle are slowly changing into a themed animal park with several different habitat zones (giant tortoise island, rainforest and cheetah country). The new savannah really looks inviting. They have released their zebra into the new large savannah exhibit just this week.

    I also expect some more changes in species and for some augmenting present stock with younger animals for breeding purposes.

    Yes, I think that Le Cornelle are changing a lot, in these last two years they have renovated some areas and maybe they will add other animals with the empty enclosures of the animals that will be hosted in the new Savana area

    Italian zoos are changing... Parco Natura Viva and Zoom Torino first, then Le Cornelle, Zoo di Pistoia, Parco Zoo Falconara, Parco Zoo Punta Verde and Zoo di Napoli
    Both of them are making big changement!!

    With giraffe: any idea where from and will they now house a reproductive group or still bachelor herd only?

    As to Zoo di Pistoia: any news / new info on the extension area for elephants and giraffe (and their new savannah)?

    I can tell you the names of the Giraffes and they are both males, I think that they are hosted in the Safari

    I read that the elephants exhibit will be end by the end of the year and they are doing also a new monkey area, while the savannah area in two years
