Fifty first week

manul_foto Inari LeimanManul named Aiolos arrived to Tallinn on a plane from Nordens Ark on Tuesday night. It will set home in the Middle Asia area in the Zoo with the current manul in charge – 8-year-old female. Aiolos is calm, bold, curious and has a good appetite: it stepped right out of the transportation cage the moment it was opened. See the video here.

Lemurs are on heat and while the male and female are cherishing each other, the young female tries to mix in. She is a bit too young still to answer to the calls from the male so she hasn’t had much luck.

Bighorn sheep are fully on heat as well. To clean the big outdoor enclosure the buck and the herd were separated from each other to the back area and this caused the buck to attack the gate. Cleaning task turned into a renovation work as the push caused the gate to separate from the wheels.

A young black stork brought to the Zoo in autumn was now moved with the other storks. A corn snake is the newest addition to the animals in the Nature school.

Polar bear Friida got to celebrate her 13-year birthday as she got a barrel as a gift from the Friends of the Zoo.

“Animal Plastic” exhibition by a Russian artist Vitali Novikov at the West entrance was opened and will stay open until 4th of April. The exhibition is included in the zoo ticket.
