The births

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.

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.
