Basel Zoo’s Australis house has other animals besides kangaroos for visitors to see – such as redback spiders, which are extremely dangerous in many ways. Currently the zoo is home to young spiders, or ‘spiderlings’.
Golden-breasted starlings are rarely kept in European zoos. So it was even more delightful to have three baby golden-breasted starlings hatch in Basel Zoo in July. Golden-breasted starlings impress using their exceptional colouring.
Basel Zoo is adjusting its admission and season ticket prices as well as increasing its commitment to conservation by introducing voluntary conservation contributions.
