    vogelcommando made a thread about this too, with a better article in which they were careful to specifically note that echolocation is not confirmed, merely suspected, and that further study is needed.

    The article: Dormouse might be first tree-climbing mammal shown to echolocate

    Interesting recent arrivals in the Bird Section = 3.3 Spice Imperial Pigeons (Ducula myristicivora); the only ones in a European zoo.

    And new to Moscow's huge (but largely off-show) Reptile collection = Petter's Chameleons (Furcifer petteri), from northern Madagascar.

    Great news!

    Am I correct to believe this is the first birth in Asiatic elephant at Zoo Moskva for a good long time?

    there are several species of animal which could be termed "mountain goat", especially in translation, so Googling it would only give you possibilities - which doesn't answer the question.
