Fifteenth week

Awakening springs gives energy and sun rays, finches are singing and buds are growing. Newts and toads spent their winter inside the Elephant house and are rushing out again.

The first Père David’s deer calf was born on Monday and three more Barbary sheep kids were born on Tuesday and Wednesday. A Golden eagle chick hatched in the incubator on Wednesday.

One of the takin calves born last week turned out to be weak and did not survive. The second calf is now enjoying the attention and milk from both mothers.

Grey and Canadian geese are brooding and the cranes have moved into their outside expositions.

Golden eagle born in Tallinn last year will spend it’s 1st birthday in France. One of the Europe’s best bird parks Le Parc des Oiseaux is waiting to provide a new home for this young eagle.

Amur leopard cubs spent their 1st birthday successfully and gathered almost 900 euros to support the international Amur leopard project.

Zoo gardeners are focusing on the area around the Elephant house and are planting flowers. A new flowerbed is planted on the grass field in front of the Elephant house and the gathered grass is now enriching the everyday lives of the zoo animals.
