    During 2014 a lot of new species came to Zoo Limpopo like Cpybaras, Ocelot, Serval, Caracal, a male Aardvark, Squirrel monkeys and Flying foxes.
    For the female Siberian white crane female a male arrived.

    who knows more about this zoo? Is it a real zoo, or a dealer? And there seems to be a second Limpopo zoo in Ukraine?

    It is a real zoo (http://www.facebook.com/zoolimpopo, www.nnzoo.ru). Quite young but not bad :)

    There is Limpopo zoo in Ukraine (http://www.facebook.com/limpopo.zoo) but I know nothing about it.

    "Limpopo" is very "african", exotic word for people of former USSR (because of very famous child book), so it is not rare name of pet stores etc.

    It is a real zoo, not dealer. They got our young male aardvark last year (he is one of unique mother-reared twins)
