    Willowbank now has two green iguanas, presumably from the clutch produced at Ti Point in 2015 (of which there were twenty babies):

    Willowbank now has some Antipodes Island Parakeets (three males). They used to have this species in the past, but maybe fifteen years ago.

    Four male Capybara bred at Auckland Zoo arrived at Willowbank last week. They are sharing the enclosure with the Small-clawed Otter. (This was from Facebook, the post of which makes it sound like they only have one otter now but I don't know if that is correct or just poor wording).

    The four Capybara are:

    Pablo (born 07/06/2016) Kosh x Consuela
    Diego (born 29/09/2017) Kosh x Rosita
    Zorro (born 29/09/2017) Kosh x Rosita
    Julio (born 29/09/2017) Kosh x Rosita

    This article confirms there is only one remaining otter at Willowbank:

    Jandi (born 07/04/2003) Nip x Jade

    Four capybara join the family at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve
