    I was surprised to read the muntjac was the same size as a dachshund that would put in contention with the pudu as the worlds smallest deer. The ones i meet are about the size of a Labrador.

    The zoo is expecting a baby boom. Right now they have baby squirrel monkeys, marmosets, and lemurs. They are hoping for Jaguar cubs soon. The Amur tigers are beginning introductions which could mean cubs eventually.

    They have also built a multi species exhibit for guinea pigs.

    Would anyone know from where Amur leopard Katouchka came to Magnetic Hill?

    I don't know where she came from for sure but strong contenders would probably be Granby or Jungle Cat World. Both have breeding pairs so she could be a cub from either place or a retired breeder.

    Thanks! She may be a retired breeder because of her age (11).

    Possibly but Granby has an 11 year old female breeding and Orono has a 14 year old female breeding. Though age may not be the reason for retirement. She could be over represented as well. Or even an inbreeding accident. Or medically or behaviorally unfit to breed Since I don't know exactly where she is from its hard to guess.

    She was born in Rosamond 2003 > moved to Granby 2007 and lives since 12/2014 in Moncton, Magnetic Hill.
