When in March this year the black and rufous elephant shrews moved into the Afrykarium, no one expected them to have their first litter so soon. This is a huge success, because it is a little known species, rarely found in zoos. They can be viewed in the Congo Rainforest, between the crocodiles and the manatees.
The zoo must be like the Red Queen - to keep in the same place, it must run - says the president of the Wroclaw zoo, and he consistently implements this idea. Five years have passed since the opening of the Afrykarium. What has changed during this time?
