We felt there would be less aggression towards one another and also towards other species if there were no young or breeding rights to fight for. When the day came to mix them with the E. With the completion of House 2 the entire project was now finished, but although the public now had access into the enclosure, we still did not have all three lemur species mixed!

Although they are known to inhabit common roosts with other bat species in the wild, our efforts to keep them with lesser spear-nosed bats failed. This species is, however, only capable of hunting rather small fish. Luckily, the number of beetles increased through subsequent generations, and finally in spring we had enough adults emerging from pupae to try them out in a mixed exhibit, without compromising further breeding potential.

Weigl in April At Blackpool we chose non-breeding animals to house in our enclosure for two main reasons: Weighed 5 kg on arrival, immature specimen. After a month a female was added. It was not until that one was acquired by Mr Willoughby P.

Very fat, much scarring of heart. Large cat flaps with different locking combinations are used for access from indoor to outdoor enclosures; this was very useful in the early stages, as it allowed us to lock the lemurs in without a keeper having to be present for a long period of time.

The different sections of this house had interconnecting doors and slides, allowing us to open it up and use it as one large enclosure if we so wished. Although there were no serious injuries during this time, it was apparent that the E.

The latter were found with bites on their bodies, so they were removed immediately. Both are preserved in American and British museums.

When it came time to allow the L. Both species bred successfully in this exhibit. Zoo records also show arrival as 2 September From Charles Wharton, adult bird.

The list includes cause of death, where known, and location of any surviving physical remains. It too was saved for a museum in Rome, but it seems to have become lost or misplaced recently.

Ages ranged from three to 18 years. This was a non-breeding family group. Another advantage of mixing the lemurs was that it would free up several more enclosures in the primate house, allowing new species to be brought into the collection.

It is furnished in the same way, but does not have an outside enclosure attached, and although it has large windows, due to their position the public cannot view it internally.

The box display and alarm will tell you if there are any problems.

We decided that the best answer to both of these problems was to restrict the public to a single walkway with side railings see photo, p. Some lived relatively short captive lives, but one sent out in lived toand was the last known captive bird living outside the Philippines.

Placed with Phyllis No. Kidneys with deep degenerative characteristics: Probable cause of death cardiac failure. This was the turning point in the project. This pool is constantly filtered, and we decided to put some blind cave tetras Astyanax mexicanus into it.

Such activities stimulated defensive behaviour in the beetles and forced the lorises to abandon hunting. The lorises are also more active than they were before. Put in with the female No. Robison, San Francisco, acquired as female.

After further planning and discussion, it was decided that the enclosure should be opened up to the public.ANNUAL REPORT.
