    Not sure if it's been mentioned already, but there's an aye-aye baby!

    Agreed; I too have sometimes experienced problems accessing previous ZSL Animal Inventories on-line. Consequently, I now save a copy to my computer as soon as they are published so that I have them available, for reference purposes, if I cannot retrieve the on-line version. (This is why I provided PDF versions instead of supplying a link.)

    Breeding is still too few and far between.

    Where does this news appear, I've seen nothing on ZSL Website, no press release, no notice near aye aye enclosure. Are you positive about this news?

    As I am visiting shortly I thought great news but I have seen no news of this anywhere on the internet but then again if the zoo hasn't release it yet then it could still be true.

    It is true, I'm sure, but obviously it doesn't mean you will actually get to see it! On 2 visits this year I've only got to see one adult Aye Aye once for about 10 seconds, despite returning several times to try again!

    Any confirmation of the baby Aye Aye?
    This would be a first for Regents Park?
    Are they planning to redevelop the North Bank when they do the Snowdon?
    If the rumours of the Aye Aye aren't true, any truth they've hatched a Dodo chick and a couple of Passenger Pidgeons?

    They did of course breed Passenger Pigeons back in the 19th century.

    There's plans for some new development north bank aviaries, I think I posted them some way back in this thread, they are on either the Westminster or Camden council planning dept's website, off the top of my head, can't remember which... :)

    A fitting tribute to a man whose inspirational presence, his huge expertise on the Natural World and his astute communications skills have given us so much till this day and hopefully for many a time to go from this day forward. ZSL could not have wished for a better Honorary Fellow.

    I noticed that the Chinese Giant salamander exhibit next to the Komodo house appears to have closed. Anyone know where Professor Woo is ?

    Odd - he was present and correct on the 21st July. Is it fully shut off or could it just be shielded off while the media were there for the Attenborough/Komodo event?

    I would assume the vet's maybe, as I visited yesterday (wasn't present) and a week or so ago (was around then)? Unless he has definitely passed on :(
