    Hello
    Is there anybody who could write me some news about 2 white rhinos from polish zoos which are in France right now?
    Male TENY from Wroclaw Zoo, since 2007 in Amneville Zoo
    Female DUMA from Poznan Zoo, since 200. in Peaugres Safari Parc
    How do they feel like, how does they relation with other rhinos look like?
    May be someone could publish some photos?

    Kind regards
    Irek

    Hello Ireneus !

    I'm French and I can give you some news of the "French Polish" rhinos!
    Teny, who was alone in Wroclaw since 15 years, now found a group in a large grassy enclosure (Amnéville, near Metz). He lives with a male aged 39, called "Mickey"; and Manzi Tswanne,two females.
    The Director of the zoo hopes Teny will be able to stimulate the females to have births in 2 or 3 years (because there has never been in Amnéville).

    Duma lives since June 2006 in Safari Peaugres in a very large enclosure (2 ha + house 800 m²). There are currently 6 white rhino Peaugres (In two different exhibits): Two males (Samson and Christian) and 4 females: Pascha, Tombi, Duma, and Kenya.

    :)

    Hello Maxime
    Thanks for info:) Good to hear that Teny is not alone finaly.
    Wow two males together in the same enclosure?
    I cross fingers for breeding success in Amneville.

    Hope Tombi female from Liberec Zoo in Czech Republic feels good. I herd that she was Duma's stepmother in Peaugres. She has shown her what to do with fresh, uncut grass.

    Still I'm waiting for photos. Will be thankful for any.

    Actually, the 2 males arent together in the same enclosure! Christian is seperated because of his agressivness... But that was in 2006... i dont know how it is now down there. :)


    Hope to see you soon Ireneus ;) Do you plan to come to the Rhino May day this year ? :)
