An adult coypu arrived at the Zoological Garden at the end of the summer.

It was originally collected by a ranger of the Israel Nature and Parks Authority, together with other coypus, for research purposes. One of the coypus, however, did not get along with the others so she found her way to our Garden. Our new coypu lives in the former crocodile enclosure, and for the first few days she hid in the vegetation. She has since become used to her new home, stopped hiding, and now can be seeing strolling about or swimming. We hope to bring her a male soon, so that she will have company.
