Eight miniature pigs have been born in Basel Zoo, three of them are black and five are black and white spotted. This is the first farrow for mother Jolly, who is doing an excellent job looking after the lively piglets. There have even been new arrivals for the Heidschnucke sheep.
Crab-eating macaques are good swimmers and love to dive for treats. Especially when it is very hot, the young animals just love messing around in the water at Basel Zoo. The three newborn crab-eating macaques are also joining in the water fun on their mothers’ backs.
Basel Zoo is adjusting its admission and season ticket prices as well as increasing its commitment to conservation by introducing voluntary conservation contributions.
