Terra Natura Benidorm incorporates a lazy Lori to the area of the volcanoThe area of the volcano at

The area of ​​the volcano at Terra Natura Benidorm has a new resident. It´s been moved a lazy lory (Nycticebus javanicus) to this area, where the permanent exhibition of poisonous animals is located because this mammal expels poison through glands. The species, whose state of conservation in nature is vulnerable, has basically nocturnal habits and therefore a facility adapted to its biorhythms has been prepared in a way that guarantees its well-being.

The emu male lives a Valentine´s day focused on raising their eggs

The breeding work in the animal kingdom usually falls on the females mostly, although there are species that break this rule. This is the case of the emu (Dromaius) that lives in Terra Natura Benidorm, since one of the females of the species has laid 10 eggs, the male is dedicated exclusively to incubate them, to the point that during this phase almost no food is eaten to focus all its time and energy to take care of the eggs.

We make tests to the capuchin monkey to prevent a hereditary disease

Our veterinary team has done a blood extraction to a capuchin monkey (Cebus apella) to check its coagulation index and determine if it suffers from a genetic disease. The zookeepers observed a few days ago that the specimen, named Golum, had some limp when walking so he couldn´t move normally in the installation. This behaviour has made the carers suspect that the animal may have inherited the same disease that his father, who died unexpectedly a few months ago.
