    Well, I just discovered this video this morning. It is from Perth zoo’s Youtube cannel and talks about new ideas that Perth zoo might incorporate in the future:



    Some of the ideas sound very exciting, interesting and impressive!

    I especially love the idea of Animals 360 that is at Philadelphia zoo and is going to be replicated here at Perth zoo!!!

    Perth Zoo has welcomed yet another porcupette from their pair of Crested Porcupines. This species is currently held by two zoos in Australia, and it will exciting to see other zoos hold this species.:)

    From the Exotic Mammals of Australia thread, "Perth imported one female around July 2017 from the Northumberland Country Zoo (aka Eshottheugh Animal Park) in the UK, and in early 2018 obtained a male from Monarto (presumably the one bred at Monarto the previous year)."
    This must be the pair's third offspring (two in late 2018)

    I contacted them a couple of weeks ago to find out if they offered any 'behind the scenes' tours so that I could see them, but it wasn't possible unfortunately. I think I knew that before I asked but thought it was worth a try.
