Aurora and Anana feel like connections to our Knut, as they (along with half-brother Nikita) were born at Toledo Zoo the same year he made his appearance in Bear-lin.

It was a perfect summer day with blue skies, warm temperatures and a nice breeze to offset the humidity. Those lazy days of summer vacation when I was a child came flooding back to my thoughts.

29.10.2013 by Dave Friday May 17 was a special day for Toronto Zoo members. We were offered a whole day to choose a 1/2 hour time slot to visit the Giant Pandas before they went on public exhibit the next day. I managed to book a time that would allow me to make a short […]



Aurora ate her vegetables with great elegance

6.6.3013 by Dave Saturday(27.3) was a perfect Spring day. Sunny, clear skies with 10C temperatures. The zoo was busy when I arrived and as usual, my first stop was the Tundra Trek. Aurora was alone in the main enclosure, snoozing behind the rocks. It was still more than an hour until feeding so I decided […]

Sunday January 27, 2013 was to be Hudson’s last day on exhibit at the Toronto Zoo. The next day, in the evening, he would be loaded into his shipping crate and taken to the airport. A transport plane will take him on a two and a half hour flight to his new home at Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

28.1.2013 by Dave Sunday(20.1) was the start of a deep freeze in Ontario and most of Canada. It was sunny, but –12C and high winds at 60-90kmh. Most of you know by now that Hudson is moving to the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the end of January. I decided to visit Hudson […]

09.12.2012 by Dave I managed to sneak a short visit to the Toronto Zoo on Tuesday morning(27.11). When I arrived, there was still ten minutes until opening. On my previous visit, I was the last to see Hudson at the end of the day. Today I was his first and only visitor at the beginning […]



What an experience – a report from the Toronto Zoo

Saturday (17.11) started out sunny and warm so I decided to take a road trip to visit Hudson in Toronto. When I arrived, I was surprised to see that the parking lot was not that full, which means small crowds at the animal exhibits. I went straight through the entrance booth and made my way to the Tundra Trek.
