Gorilla birth

La Palmyre Zoo is thrilled to welcome a newborn gorilla! On January 20, after a gestation period of 8 months, our 18-year-old female western lowland gorilla Ybana gave birth to a healthy baby (this is the third baby for Ybana who is the only adult female of the group).

2 Nile crocodiles have arrived

After nearly a 10-year absence,  Nile crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus) are back to La Palmyre Zoo! A male and a female from Pont-Scorff Zoo arrived at the reptile house last Wednesday and are hosted in the former basin of the spectacled caimans.

Dinner's ready!

Our cats are fed alternatively with chicken carcasses or beef meat (bones, ribs or steaks). Twice a week, food amount is reduced in order to prevent obesity problems and facilitate returns into the buildings each evening for security reasons (except for the lynxes who stay outside all year round and are fasted two days a week).
