Baby Boom among Our Animals that are kept in Kiev Zoo


Due to global reconstruction of Kharkov Zoo we sent many animals for temporary keeping to some other Zoos of Ukraine. Our Abyssynian Ground Hornbills have been living for a year there, as well as Black Storks, David's Deer, Bisons and a Camel. They have nicely adapted themselves to new conditions. Kiev Zoo workers say the animals have made themselves at home.
