    The Taipei Zoo's program to keep and breed pangolins, an animal notoriously difficult to maintain in captivity, has scored another success as a pangolin born recently there is doing well, the zoo said Monday.

    The baby pangolin, the fourth ever born in captivity at the zoo, was born on Dec. 9, 2010 and now weighs 260 grams, compared with 105 grams at birth, said zoo director Jason Yeh in a statement.

    The article says not the whole truth, because only the two young born in 2010 are fathered in the Zoo Taipai, the other two were born to mothers coming pregnant to the zoo....
