Three young capybaras are growing in the South America enclosure. This species, considered as the largest member of the rodent family, regularly reproduces in our Zoo.
In early February we already reported on the joeys growing in the pouch of the Red-necked Wallabies. The three babies have grown a lot since and reached the age when they can leave the pouch. In the meanwhile two new joeys looked out of the pouch.
The cameras installed in the wombats’ den recorded joyful images recently. A joey is peeking out of the pouch of the mother animal, Molly.
In the recently opened Shark School, visitors can get to know the wonderful world of sharks. But how true are the stories of how dangerous sharks are?
In the framework of their rescue work in 2018, our colleagues assisted 1807 animals of 108 protected or specially protected species.
Our Zoo is worth a visit, even when it is cold outside, since we are open whatever the weather and, in our heated animal enclosures, we offer a real tropical climate.
In December 2018 a new Shark School was added to the attractions of the Once-upon-a-Time Castle. This exciting exhibit gives an insight to a world that in most zoos is behind the scenes.
The Zoo has been involved in rescuing injured birds and small mammals for a long time. In our new Rescue Centre the public can view the entire rescue process.
Patagonian maras, endemic in South America, brought a smile to our faces this year with their ten pups. The five pups most recently born have just come out from their refuge to the enclosure.
A pup was born to the Southern three-banded armadillos on show in the historic Palm House (America Tropicana). The baby mainly comes out in the afternoon hours because the adult animals are fed at this time.
