    New species for this year will include red panda, bearded dragon, leafcutter ants and GUIANAN cock-of-the-rock !

    (To attract more visitors, more non-birds are being added to the collection)

    Yep and therefore we are happy they got moved on-show. There are more interesting species off-show that hopefully will be visible for the public in the future.

    They are also mentioned on ZTL so I guess its correct ( BTW heared already earlier rumors about it ).

    It is not a rumour there are lesser birds of paradise behind the scenes. They are indeed confiscated birds. It has been mentioned in some other topics here on zoochat if I m correct.

    Ok as far as I'm aware there were 36 birds stolen.
    The species I know were taken were Luzon rufous hornbills, Visayan tarictic hornbills, a wreathed hornbill, wrinkled hornbills, white-crowned hornbills, silvery-cheeked hornbills, royal starlings, toco toucans, great blue turaco, green aracari, Von der Decken's hornbill, Sulawesi tarictic hornbill, Mindanao bleeding-heart dove, hawk-headed parrot, citron-crested cockatoo and 'Dumont mynah' (not sure if that's the name). Anyone help with adding some of the other species taken?
