For the eight time, Pakas have been born at the Tscheljabinsk Zoo.
Am I the only one that does not know what a Pakas is, before l google I am betting its a bird!
I dunno zooman, "born" suggests mammal (cf. hatched for birds, reptiles). But I don't have a clue what it is, possibly a small mammal? Googling it isn't helping me.
Lowland paca (Cuniculus paca) - cool animals.
As in paca Cuniculus paca.

Here's some more info on the zoo if anyone is interested:
The website is a great resource for zoos in that part of the world.
I do believe that that website is none other than ZooChatter Alex Kant's very own website and I agree with Shirokuma, it's possibly the best site for zoos that are under-represented on here.
This zoo is bad. It's corrupted, and no scientific work is present.
All animals that die here are being incinerated - including cheetah, armadillo, 2-toed sloth, marmosets and lioness.
2 Puma cubs were born at 9th of May.
Chapman's zebra male arrived from Almaty zoo.
