Those who were observant may have been lucky enough to see the addition to the white-collared mangabey family: a week-old baby firmly grasping onto its mother’s belly.

Last weekend, four spot-billed duck, a bar-headed goose and an Elliot’s pheasant chicks hatched in the incubator. On Tuesday, five Reeves’s pheasant chicks emerged from the egg.

The blue-and-yellow macaw couple moved outside for the summer as well. The macaws’ indoor enclosure was taken over by a white-fronted amazon, for whom the changeable Estonian weather is not too comfortable.

The alpacas and guanacos living near the tropical house exchanged enclosures for a while as the larger guanaco herd will be able to eat more and clean the enclosure of bush faster.

On Tuesday, the young female caracal Barunka was brought to the caracal enclosure of the pachyderm house from the vet building’s quarantine facility. As soon as the young feline, who arrived in Tallinn from Dvur Kralove zoo in February, adjusts to the new residence and starts to eat, she will be allowed outdoors to meet the visitors.

The first ball was taken to the rhino enclosure already.
