certainly the ones at Bristol all died of aspergillosis
Does anybody know the name and birthdates of the Sumatran tigers?
The Sumatran tigers left the zoo some years ago...
And a female returned in 2010!
*Daseep* born 10. September at Frankfurt. Her Mother is Malea, still living in Frankfurt.
Do you know what the old pair were called they produced 2:1 in 2005.
The parents of the 2005 litter were
Carlos - born 2001 at Berlin Tierpark
Tornade - Born 12 August 1997 at Obterre, France
Tornade went to Parken, Sweden in early 2008. She's now a mum again after having a male cub in April 2010. His name is Wayan and his father is Bagus from the litter born 3rd April 2007 at Stuttgart
Carlos went to Stuttgart in 2006 and sired the 2007 litter there with a female called Dumai (born 17.4.00 at Dudley)
Is it intended for Daseep to remain at Wuppertal for the forseeable future(hence Wuppertal going back into Sumatrans) or will she be moved elsewhere depending on EEP recommendations?
As far as I know it she will leave the zoo together with the young amur tigress. But when, I dunno.
Thank you, Animal
has anyone seen the hummingbirds/manakins in the free-flying section of the birdhouse? And the black-headed ducks in the large pond at the beginning of the zoo?
Last time I was in Wuppertal I have seen the black-headed ducks. Unfortunately the free-flying section of the birdhouse was closed for breeding purposes.
I have dropped a few photographs in the gallery for your zoos of two Tigers you kindly sent to Dudley Zoo UK.
Daseep and Tschuna are beautiful animals and seem to have settled in well hope you enjoy the photographs
Another gorilla born to "Vimoto" and "Ukiwa". The little one is going to be send to Wilhelma Stuttgart like "Grace's" baby last week.
0:0:4 Amur Tiger cubs born on 26th June: Being mother reared this time (The first litter was rejected and hence handreared)
Zoo Wuppertal: Erste Fotos vom Tigernachwuchs
Three bonobos from Wuppertal were shipped to La Vallee des Singes (Romagne) in France.
5,2 animals remain at Wuppertal, "Mato". "Lusambo", "Birogu". "Ayubo". "Azibo", "Eja" and "Muhdeblu".
Good news for Yellow-backed duiker. I new male from the USA is coming in the following weeks.
Just came back form a trip to several zoos in Rhein-Ruhr area and really enjoyed Wuppertal. So many interesting species, many young animals, nice area and exhibits and not overcrowded.
Two yellow-backed duiker arrived from the US to join the last two females in europe (9 and 11 years old at Wuppertal and Nuremberg). The new ones are supposed to be co-housed with okapis.
Zootierliste states that only 1.1 little penguins remain, and that the rest had died of tuberculosis. A few pages ago (on this thread) aspergillosis was mentioned as a more likely issue. Is tuberculosis becoming common in penguins nowadays?
I think aspergillosis is more likely than tuberculosis.
Me too. I know that misdiagnosis of aspergillosis (as tuberculosis) is not uncommon in humans; or maybe something was just lost in translation from zootierliste. Either way, the colony has suffered a massive loss and I hope the two survivors are coping well.
