    Sometime within the last few months, the park acquired 3.7 Barbary deer (Cervus (elaphus) barbarus). This brings their total population to 3.43, the only AZA zoo (and one of few worldwide) with the species. Hopefully breeding will be successful!

    None that I am aware of. I have never even seen it mentioned on social media by SDZ.

    This means 3 / 4 reproductively successful females have given birth to a live calf in the last 2 years. I expect the 4th will re-deliver end of season or early 2018.

    A male black-footed cat is now on exhibit, hopefully there will be kittens in the future!

    I just uploaded 55 photos into the gallery, including several of the fairly new Tiger Trail complex.
