Fiftieth week

Kigoma ja Kibibi_foto Signe KalganKeepers noticed that the black rhinos Kibibi and Kigoma were interested in each other last weekend and decided to let them together. They enjoyed each other’s company a lot and they wouldn’t let go of each other! If all goes well, Tallinn Zoo is expecting a rhino foal in 15 to 16 months.

Common marmoset youngsters born a month ago can barely hang onto their parent’s back and are taking longer and longer independent expeditions around the enclosure.

Five more river stingrays we let into the big pool in the Tropical house and it makes a total of eight stingrays in the pool. The aquarium next door is open again after the renovation and the Malawi lake fish species were moved back to represent the life of the African lake. The last aquarium on the right got new inhabitants too: Clarias is a genus of catfishes that can spend some time on the ground breathing air and moving from one water are to another by using its fins.

Nature school got a new family member as well: the Russian ratsnake or also known as a Manchurian black water snake is the biggest one in the ratsnake family that can grow up to 2 meters long. It has recognizable yellow cross stripes and it is know for its excellent climbing skills.

Young amur leopard Dora and Muusi had to start their independent lives and they moved out of their mothers enclosure. They are waiting for transportation to their new homes.

Another goshawk has ringed on Friday and it will be let back into the nature as it has gathered its energy back after being brought to the zoo.
