    A new zoo brought online here, with the news they have imported 2.2 bharal.
    Both males are from Park Lunaret and two females from the Tierpark Berlin.

    The only ones in continental Europe surely? Hamerton and Tayto Park should still hold them unless I've missed something?

    I'm sure there's some in private hands as well. :)

    Still incorrect; unless things have changed very recently there is a pair at Tierpark Berlin in Germany, and another pair at Starooskolskiy Zoopark in Russia!

    Sofar, this year 7 Florida brown pelicans have been hatched at Halle :).
    This subspecies was obtained in 2003 and in 2008 Halle had the European first-breeding with it.

    New species for Halle ( and as it seems Europe ) : Philippine banded monitor - Varanus nuchalis :

    Der 1901 eröffnete Zoologische Garten Halle/Saale liegt mit seinen 9 Hektar großen Gelände auf dem 130 m hohen Reilsberg. Im einzigen Bergzoo Deutschlands leben über 1500 Tiere in etwa 250 Arten.

    Mit dem Varanus nuchalis den man im deutschen auch Philipinen-Bindenwaran nennt, ist eine weitere Art hinzugekommen. Dieses ehemalig als Unterart des Bindenwaran bezeichnete Reptil, gibt es in Europa derzeit nur im Zoo Halle zu sehen.

    Nur wie kam er in den Bergzoo? Wie der Zoo in einer Pressemitteilung selbst erklärt, wurde dieser Waran auf dem Flughafen Leipzig/Halle vom Zoll aufgegriffen. Wieder mal hat hier der illegale Tierhandel zugeschlagen. Ein großes Problem für die Bestände in den jeweiligen Heimatländern vieler Arten.

    Eine Rückfuhr ist zumeist nicht mehr möglich, da die genaue Herkunft der Tiere zumeist unaufklärbar bleibt. Zoos nehmen immer wieder solche Tiere auf und geben ihnen ein artgerechtes Zuhause. So auch hier, im Zoo Halle lebt der Varanus nuchalis nun im Raubtierhaus. Noch ist er aber in der Eingewöhnungsphase.
