    In addition to the recently arrived meerkats, Wildlife HQ has also welcomed a pair of golden lion tamarins from Mogo, young male Rio and older female Muppet, which are not expected to breed. They are also expecting capybara to arrive in the near future.

    You know it only takes a couple of seconds to type out an animal's actual name instead of using an ambiguous acronym, even just as a common courtesy to other members so that they don't need to try and guess what you are trying to say.
