Last time, I showed you Schwarze Berge, this time we'll visit Hamburg's second zoo Hagenbecks Tierpark.
Taiga, a 16 year old female.
baby South American Coatis (Nasua nasua)
one of four baby lions born this year
a Chinese Muntjac (Muntiacus reevesi), a small deer species - they range free in the zoo and this one allowed me to scratch its head and totally blissed out
South American Tapir (Tapirus terrestris)) - they love being petted as well
a baby Angeln Saddleback pig, a rare German breed from Schleswig-Holstein. The adults grow over 80 cms tall and reach a weight of more than 300 kg.
a juvenile scarlet Ibis (Eudocimus ruber), still changing into its adult, all-red plumage
a Green-Winged Macaw (Ara chloropterus) - Hagenbeck owns the biggest captive group of them worldwide. Housed in an enormous 4000 m³ enclosure that allows them free flight, they breed successfully most years.
Northern Carmine Bee-Eater (Merops nubicus), free-flying in Hagenbecks Troparium,a big hall modelled after a tropical jungle with animals in enclosures and free-ranging
a Southern Stingray (Dasyatis americana)
the big shark reef, 14 metres long and housing several shark and ray species as well as a huge number of smaller tropical fish
Kamchatka Brown Bear (Ursus arctos beringianus), the second biggest subspecies from the Russian Far East. After a bit of waiting around the pile of fur showed itself to be the female with her two cubs, born in January
