    Zagreb Zoo has received Tentacled Snakes from the USA.
    The snakes were captive-bred at Memphis, but came to Zagreb via an agreement with Los Angeles.

    I hope Olms will become more common in European zoos. Very good example of threatened European fauna.

    Zagreb Zoo made many great improvements in the last years. Last photos from Zoo Zagreb were from 2008. So, I add fresh photos of new Olm, Balkan snow vole, Long-tailed field mouse (all new exhibits in 2020) and King Cobra (new exhibit in 2019) from my last visit in January this year.

    Excellent :D had things gone a little differently, I would have visited in March. Always the future, I suppose!

    I don't suppose you have any good photographs of the various native Croatian snakes held at the collection? Currently these are entirely absent from the gallery.

    Yes, many plans have changed in the last months ... :(
    Croatian snake collection (in the same building as Olm, Balkan snow vole and field mouse) is really impressive. But I'm sorry, I don't have that photos.
