    I am esp. looking forward to the regrading of Zoo di Napoli. It had a fine history in African hoofstock and carnivores at one time. It need be again.

    Zoo di Napoli transformed in a zoo like San Diego Zoo?!!!....

    Well theoretically possible, but I have big doubts that this huge goal will become reality (although the climatic conditions are great). But who should spent the money that is therefore needed (not only for construction but also for annual costs)?

    Zoo Napoli: the hatching of crowned cranes is not just significant for the zoo, but alas also for Europe as a whole as the species is increasingly threatened in the wild and not frequently bred in zoos.

    Why SABRINA has died (Age?) and when exactly?

    In my Database she was born in 1967, so she was 46...?!?
