    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.

    Here's some more info on the zoo if anyone is interested:

    zoo.asp


    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.
