Naissance chez les tamarins de Goeldi !
Le couple de Tamarins de Goeldi a été formé au mois de mars, en même temps que le couple de Tamandua.
Il était donc possible que les naissances aient lieu à la même période, la durée de gestation étant identique.
Et bien à peine 4 jours après la naissance du bébé fourmilier, un petit tamarin de Goeldi pointait lui aussi le bout de son nez !
Un petit punk !
Un nouveau petit pigeon couronné vient de quitter le nid.
Il se balade fièrement dans la serre aux cotés de ses parents et arbore déjà une jolie crête !
La grande première la plus mignonne de France !
Toute l’équipe de Biotropica est ravie de partager avec vous la naissance du 1er bébé tamandua, appelé aussi fourmilier nain, de France !!
N’est il pas trop mignon avec ses grandes oreilles et son long nez ?
En tous cas, nous on craque !!

First time in France : a baby elephant shrew was born !
This Monday, August 12, 2019, a baby pointed the tip of his trunk. Not really born but “out of the ground” to be more precise : Baby elephant shrews spend the first 4 weeks of their lives well hidden in a hole dug by the parents and carefully covered with leaves. They never leave it. It is impossible to know that there was a birth.
It will be necessary to do quickly to see this baby in the enclosure of the parents! In a month, he will be separated to avoid fights!

Baby pelicans ! For the first time in Biotropica !
Baby dalmatian pelicans hatched just few days ago.
We gave 2 years ago some materials to our dalmatian pelicans in order to build their nest.
We now have as much males as females.
That’s certainly why they succesfully bred this year.
The young are rearded by their parents on the edges of the lake.

The baby hung on the belly of his mother making him hard to see, But with patience you’ll be able to find him !

Unique in France !! Birth of a baby Coendou!
On December 7, 2017, a little redhead pointed the tip of his nose.
Only 6 months after the arrival of the parents, this birth was a real surprise.
Indeed the gestation of the coendous lasts approximately 6 months, the small one was thus conceived from the first days following the meeting between the male and the female.
Roux at birth and devoid of quills, this little one will quickly become the color of adults with beautiful black and white quills.
