    I can tell you the names of the Giraffes and they are both males, I think that they are hosted in the Safari

    I read that the elephants exhibit will be end by the end of the year and they are doing also a new monkey area, while the savannah area in two years

    Parco Natura Viva:
    -During 2015 are arrived 21 new animals (of species that were already hosted in the park): a female of White-Tailed Sea Eagle, 7 females of Black-Tailed Praire Dogs and a male of Bactrian Camel
    -Construction of a Summer Camp for night camping inside the park
    -In the Safari part it's not permitted anymore to entre with private cars, now a guide will carry you inside with a truck (because it's more ecological and thematic too)
    -Are born a Watussi Cattle and a Barbary Sheep
    -New Area for Geladas inside the Safari (a group of males)
    -New Area: The House of Giants, that will be build where now there are the Reptilarium and the Greenhouse where will live "strange and unknwon animals" too, some that are already hosted in the park (like the 11 Aldabran Giant Tortoises) and some new, like the Komodo Dragons
