Zazi and Maggie left this morning for their new home at the Little Rock Zoo in Arkansas. Their new enclosure has a fake termite mound and a really nice downed tree for them to climb on. Their new keepers told us that Zazi has already homed in on the kudu next door, and they are pretty sure she wants to eat them! Zazi and Maggie have also heard the blue cranes vocalize and the Ankole cows mooing in the distance. They will be great exhibit cats for the zoo.
Maggie will probably be approved to breed in the future and, when she is old enough, the Species Survival Plan (SSP) will determine what facility she will be sent to for breeding. We were sad to see them leave us, but we are excited for their new adventure. Check out their new exhibit!
