    A very small, private owned zoo which houses mainly small mammals.
    Today the park recieved 13 Steppe lemmings which will soon be on public view ( FB ).

    Are those by chance the lemmings from Blijdorp?

    Don't know were the Lemmings came from - not mentioned in the Facebook-note, sorry.

    Commotion about the confistigation of 4 coypus ! Because of the ( European ) law which forbid the breeding of surtain animal-species, Kleindierpark was visited by some officials in 2017 to check if the rules were followed up.
    The park should recieve a report about the findings but didn't get it and in the meantime 4 coypu's were born. Last week the park was visited by Stichting AAP which hadwas ordered to confitigate the latest-born 4 coypu's, leaving 4 older females at the park.
    Because the park sofar has not recieved the end-report of the 2017-inspection, they didn't know about this confistication but already had planned to castrate the single male-young ( the other 3 being females ) to full-fill the law.
    Now they go trying to get back their animals.... :
