Playing Tarzan in Bradford on Avon

It’s taken me a while to get round to writing this. Partly because I’ve been a miserable bugger of late. Partly because I question the level of interest in my weekend antics, and partly because I’ve been busy keeping my head down, and generally getting on people’s nerves. 1,033 more words

Το πρώτο κόκκινο πάντα στο Longleat Safari Park

Με γεννητούρια θα σας καληνυχτίσω!!!!!

Ο πατέρας του ο Ajenda, που σημαίνει βασιλιάς του βουνού, ήρθε στο Longleat Safari Park στο Wiltshire από τη Γερμανία το 2012.

Οι φύλακες εξέδωσαν  έκκληση για να βρεθεί και η μητέρα και βρέθηκε η Rufina, που σημαίνει «κόκκινα μαλλιά» Ιταλίδα στην καταγωγή, μόλις ένα χρόνο αργότερα.

Το νεογνό, το οποίο δεν έχει ακόμη όνομα, σηματοδοτεί την πρώτη επιτυχία της αναπαραγωγής των κόκκινων πάντα, που τελούν υπό εξαφάνιση!!!
