Three chicks hatched: Emperor goose on Sunday and by Tuesday two bar-geese. Red-crowned cranes have adopted a white stork chick that’s happily walking around the outdoor enclosure.
Also two Eastern Caucasian turs and one Armenian muflon were born.

Barnacle geese family with two chicks are defending themselves extremely well from the crow attacks. The Zoo got temporary addition to the animal collection as a wild white stork joined the birds.

The blue-and-yellow macaw chick born on 2nd of April was brave enough to leave the nest and is now roaming around the enclosure with its parents. Its younger sibling born on 5th of April is now the one sitting on the edge of the nest. Elephant house put a Guenther’s vole family on display for visitors to see.

The famous Zoo hedgehog Konnat had to be put down due to neurological damage it had suffered in nature before coming to the Zoo.
Raccoon dogs, foxes and the snow leopard Mahnadi were vaccinated.

Zoo hobby group kids helped out the Tropical house by emptying one of the aquariums for cleaning.

The ZOO statue in the North entrance was covered as visitors climbing on top of it have damaged the statue.

We remind our visitors, that you might encounter grass snakes on zoo territory and should not be alarmed – we recommend not to touch them and they will usually escape to the bushes when people approach.
