    Bongorob,
    Can you give me a species list for realm of the red ape? That galliforme list would be very nice thanks. Could you also do one for hornbill as I can't find when the joined the zoos collection.

    Thanks.

    The female Vieillot's Crested Firebacks died and the male eventually left Chester. The Bare-faced Curassows were replaced by the Red-billed Curassows. Chester had a UK first breeding of bare-faced Curassow in 1966 and a first UK breeding of Red-billed Curassow in 2004.

    Why don't they have the guan anymore. they are a wonderful species. Not as nice as the horned guan but they are just exceptionally rare in zoos.
