Zookeeper Michelle Reports

Zookeeper Michelle with the Capybaras!

We are very excited as Spring wraps up and Summer is just around the corner.  The capybara, the largest rodent in the world, are  fan favorites here at the zoo!  They are supposed to be moving in with the the Brazilian Tapirs this summer….however, we are still not sure if we will be moving them.  This is the first time other than the African Plains that we will be attempting to put two different species together in a habitat.  We are a little hesitant as we don’t know how the Tapirs will react to the Capys! We’ll keep you updated!  Thanks to everyone for their donations.  We are still looking for towels and blankets (used is fine)!
