First hatchling of 2016,a Tunesian spur-thighd tortoise .
Giant anteater born at Prague Zoo - a first for the zoo .
Now it makes sense why area around anteater house was sealed off last weekend.
The zoo got also two new Aldabran giant tortoises, 10 years old imports from Mauritius.
New addition is a pair of emperor geese. They live on the pond under lift, together with a family of Bewick's swans and red-breasted geese.
Was so lucky to see the Emperor geese already Dec. 19 last year, see http://www.zoochat.com/416/emperor-geese-436031/
