Novel endotheliotropic herpesviruses fatal for Asian and African elephants. (1/318)

A highly fatal hemorrhagic disease has been identified in 10 young Asian and African elephants at North American zoos. In the affected animals there was ultrastructural evidence for herpesvirus-like particles in endothelial cells of the heart, liver, and tongue. Consensus primer polymerase chain reaction combined with sequencing yielded molecular evidence that confirmed the presence of two novel but related herpesviruses associated with the disease, one in Asian elephants and another in African elephants. Otherwise healthy African elephants with external herpetic lesions yielded herpesvirus sequences identical to that found in Asian elephants with endothelial disease. This finding suggests that the Asian elephant deaths were caused by cross-species infection with a herpesvirus that is naturally latent in, but normally not lethal to, African elephants. A reciprocal relationship may exist for the African elephant disease.  (+info)

A survey of serum and dietary carotenoids in captive wild animals. (2/318)

Accumulation of carotenoids varies greatly among animal species and is not fully characterized. Circulating carotenoid concentration data in captive wild animals are limited and may be useful for their management. Serum carotenoid concentrations and dietary intakes were surveyed and the extent of accumulation categorized for 76 species of captive wild animals at Brookfield Zoo. Blood samples were obtained opportunistically from 275 individual animals immobilized for a variety of reasons; serum was analyzed for alpha- and beta-carotene, lutein + zeaxanthin, lycopene, beta-cryptoxanthin and canthaxanthin. Total carotenoid content of diets was calculated from tables and chemical analyses of commonly consumed dietary components. Diets were categorized as low, moderate or high in carotenoid content as were total serum carotenoid concentrations. Animals were classified as unknown, high, moderate or low (non-) accumulators of dietary cartenoids. Nonaccumulators had total serum carotenoid concentrations of 0-101 nmol/L, whereas accumulators had concentrations that ranged widely, from 225 to 35,351 nmol/L. Primates were uniquely distinguished by the widest range of type and concentration of carotenoids in their sera. Most were classified as high to moderate accumulators. Felids had high accumulation of beta-carotene regardless of dietary intake, whereas a wide range of exotic birds accumulated only the xanthophylls, lutein + zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin or cryptoxanthin. The exotic ungulates, with the exception of the bovids, had negligible or nondetectable carotenoid serum concentrations despite moderate intakes. Bovids accumulated only beta-carotene despite moderately high lutein + zeaxanthin intakes. Wild captive species demonstrated a wide variety of carotenoid accumulation patterns, which could be exploited to answer remaining questions concerning carotenoid metabolism and function.  (+info)

Natural and experimental oral infection of nonhuman primates by bovine spongiform encephalopathy agents. (3/318)

Experimental lemurs either were infected orally with the agent of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) or were maintained as uninfected control animals. Immunohistochemical examination for proteinase-resistant protein (prion protein or PrP) was performed on tissues from two infected but still asymptomatic lemurs, killed 5 months after infection, and from three uninfected control lemurs. Control tissues showed no staining, whereas PrP was detected in the infected animals in tonsil, gastrointestinal tract and associated lymphatic tissues, and spleen. In addition, PrP was detected in ventral and dorsal roots of the cervical spinal cord, and within the spinal cord PrP could be traced in nerve tracts as far as the cerebral cortex. Similar patterns of PrP immunoreactivity were seen in two symptomatic and 18 apparently healthy lemurs in three different French primate centers, all of which had been fed diets supplemented with a beef protein product manufactured by a British company that has since ceased to include beef in its veterinary nutritional products. This study of BSE-infected lemurs early in their incubation period extends previous pathogenesis studies of the distribution of infectivity and PrP in natural and experimental scrapie. The similarity of neuropathology and PrP immunostaining patterns in experimentally infected animals to those observed in both symptomatic and asymptomatic animals in primate centers suggests that BSE contamination of zoo animals may have been more widespread than is generally appreciated.  (+info)

Thyroid C-cell carcinoma with amyloid in a red fox (Vulpes vulpes schrenchki). (4/318)

An amyloid-producing medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in a red fox (Vulpes vulpes schrenchki) bred in a zoo was examined using histopathologic and immunohistochemical techniques. The neoplastic cells had an ill-defined cytoplasmic membrane and abundant, finely granular eosinophilic cytoplasm, containing numerous argyrophilic granules. The neoplastic tissues were divided into various sizes by a vascular connective stroma, which was partly fibrovascular with broad areas of hyalinization containing varied amounts of amyloid. Immunohistochemically, neoplastic cells showed reactivity to anti-calcitonin, neuron-specific enolase, somatostatin, and keratin antibodies. However, amyloid in the stroma did not show immunoreactivity to the antibodies used. Histologic and immunohistochemical features of MTC in the present animal were analogous to those of the C-cell carcinoma derived from thyroid C cells (parafollicular cells) reported in humans and dogs.  (+info)

Nocardia nova causing pulmonary nocardiosis of black crakes (Limnocorax flavirostra). (5/318)

Natural nocardial infection has been reported in many different species including mammals and fish, but reports in birds remain uncommon. Eight juvenile Black Crakes (Limnocoraxflavirostra) died unexpectedly at the Basle Zoo. Necropsy revealed disseminated white, firm nodules, 1-3 mm in diameter, throughout the lung parenchyma. Histologically, the lungs contained multiple, often confluent granulomas with central necrosis. Delicate, gram-positive, 0.5- to 1.0-microm-wide, branching, occasionally beaded, filamentous organisms were visible in necrotic centers. These organisms were acid fast when stained with Fite-Faraco. No histologic lesions were seen in other organs. Nocardia nova was isolated from liver, spleen, kidney, and lung. Granulomatous and necrotizing nocardial pneumonia with agonal septicemia was diagnosed, suggesting an aerogenous infection. To our knowledge, this is the first reported epizootic outbreak of nocardiosis in birds, which is additionally unusual because it was caused by N. nova.  (+info)

Coxsackievirus B4 myocarditis in an orangutan. (6/318)

A 37-year-old female orangutan died at the zoological garden. Autopsy examination demonstrated severe coxsackievirus B4 myocarditis immunohistochemically as a cause of the death. Apoptosis of the cardiac muscle cells was observed using the TdT-mediated dUTP-biotin nick endo labeling method and was considered to play a role in the myocarditis. Congestion of the liver and both lungs due to cardiac failure was also observed. Coxsackievirus infection is found frequently in the Okinawan human population. The present orangutan's infection might have come from visitors who were allowed to go near the orangutan. Malignant tumors, severe suppurative infections, and intestinal parasite infections were not observed. Epstein-Barr virus DNA was detected in lymph nodes, but there was no Burkitt's lymphoma.  (+info)

Fatal measles virus infection in Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata). (7/318)

An outbreak of natural measles virus infection occurred in a group of Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata). Over a period of 4 months, 12 of 53 Japanese macaques died following a 2-23-day history of anorexia, diarrhea, and dermatitis. The monkeys were kept in outdoor exhibits but had been moved temporarily into indoor caging and then transferred to new outdoor exhibits. Ten monkeys died while they were in temporary caging, and two monkeys died after they were moved to new outdoor exhibits. The diagnoses were made based on the results of histopathology, immunohistochemistry (IHC), in situ hybridization (ISH), and electron microscopy. Measles virus antigens were detected in the lung, stomach, skin, salivary gland, spleen, and lymph nodes. Tangled, tubular nucleocapsids compatible with paramyxovirus were noted in the lung tissue. As a result of immunosuppression following measles virus infection, various secondary infections including disseminated cytomegalovirus infection, adenoviral and bacterial pneumonia, and Candida albicans-associated gingivitis and esophagitis were noted. The primary infective source or the mode of infection could not be determined in this outbreak, but measles virus may have been transmitted to the monkeys from human visitors while the monkeys were on exhibit.  (+info)

Serological detection of Capillaria hepatica by indirect immunofluorescence assay. (8/318)

In this paper, a serological assay for the detection of antibodies to Capillaria hepatica, a zoonotic parasite, is described. In the past, the only way of detecting Capillaria hepatica was to perform a liver biopsy. The indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) assay, based on liver sections of naturally infected mice and human serum samples, is suitable for detecting early stages of human infections and for screening purposes. No cross-reactivity with other parasitic infections was detected. We have applied the IIF assay to serum samples of 60 employees of the Zoological Garden of Vienna, Schonbrunn, Austria, and found one positive and one questionable sample.  (+info)

San Diego Zoo Global is a not-for-profit organization headquartered in San Diego that operates the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, and the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy. Founded in 1916 as the Zoological Society of San Diego under the leadership of Harry M. Wegeforth, the organization claims the largest zoological society membership in the world, with more than 250,000 member households and 130,000 child memberships, representing more than half a million people. The organizations mission is to save vulnerable species through animal care based in conservation science. In its first few decades, the Zoological Society of San Diego worked to establish and build up the San Diego Zoo. Members of the organization formed groups that later became the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and American Association of Zoo Keepers. In the early 1970s the Society established the San Diego Wild Animal Park in the San Pasqual ...
The News & Observer reports on a recent symposium at North Carolina State University dealing with overweight zoo animals: Gorillas in the wild live on a bulky, low-calorie diet of such things as leaves, shoots and bark, but in zoos are often fed specially formulated biscuits. The biscuits offer nutrition, but arent bulky and dont fill up a peckish gorilla. That stresses out the primates and can lead to neurotic behavior. That also means that zoo gorillas -- who spend [...]
Veterinary Services is mainly concerned with livestock; however, the affiliated National Center for Import and Export regulates the import and export of zoo animals. Some animals imported from foreign countries for exhibition in zoos will be subject to the Centers regulations and oversight.. A facility can have up to three pre-licensing inspections in an attempt to meet the standards. The USDA is required to inspect research facilities once per year and conduct follow-up examinations until AWA violations are corrected. [25] They may also engage in any inspections deemed necessary pursuant to a complaint. [26] With the exception of the pre-licensing procedure, all subsequent inspections are unannounced. [27] APHIS employs 104 inspectors to survey the 2,000+ licensed facilities currently in existence.

Crowded house. Most ant colonies live in nests on or under the ground or in trees, but some ant species live in clusters, not building any nests at all. Most ant colonies have a queen, large numbers of female worker ants, and occasionally some males. The queens only job is to lay eggs, and this she does throughout her entire life. But how does she begin her "reign"?. Queen for a day (or much longer). A young winged queen leaves her birth colony on her first and only flight with a number of winged males. Males are only produced for mating purposes and do no work other than to fertilize virgin queens. Mating flights typically include neighboring ant colonies, and the signals for this coordinated nuptial swarm are still not fully understood. After the queen and males mate, the males die. The young queen now finds a good site to make her nest and start her colony. She rakes the wings off her body, as she no longer needs them for her new life. The queen begins her new colony there, laying eggs and ...
Chinese silver grass has become an invasive species in parts of the US, including California and many states of the Southeast. It can be found growing in large clumps, making it harder for native grasses and other plants to survive. Fortunately, some of the ornamental cultivars are sterile, so savvy gardeners can grow this lovely grass without fear of contributing to habitat loss. For other cultivars, cutting off the developing seed heads prevents seeds from developing and dispersing to where they dont belong. Still, rhizomes may spread this grass into places you dont want it.. ...
Every zoo animal has a unique story and a journey all their own. Some animals come to the Fort Wayne Childrens zoo as adults and some are born here and move on to new adventures at other zoos. The lemur and wildebeest babies born at the zoo in 2014 fall into a different category. Theyre growing up right here in Fort Wayne and zoo guests get to see it all!. Back in September one of the zoos ring-tailed lemurs, Kyna, gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Zoo keepers named her "Madi" and guests had a chance to see mom and baby on exhibit for a few weeks before the close of the 2014 season. Madi has grown quite a bit and is almost as big as the other three lemurs in her troop. Zoo keeper Helena Lacey explains lemur behavior, "Madi would stay with her family in the wild, so she stays with them at the zoo. Shes weaned now and eats the same diet as the adults." Lacey has also begun training Madi using operant conditioning. Zoo keepers train animals on behaviors such as moving indoors when it gets cold ...

In the wallabies of Tasmania, births occur between late January and July with the majority of young born in February and March. On mainland Australia, females give birth in all months. Being marsupials, they give birth after a very short gestation period (about 30 days). The immature embryo is expelled through the urogenital sinus and must wriggle along a path of dampened fur from the mothers tail to her pouch. Inside the pouch the embryo attaches to a teat for suckling. The female will mate again very soon after giving birth, but if a young is already established in the pouch, the new embryo stops developing when it is only a ball of cells (the blastocyst stage). This process is known as embryonic diapause or delayed implantation. The new embryo does not start to develop until the young already present in the pouch is ready to leave or dies. It is possible for a female to be suckling a young in her pouch, a larger young outside the pouch and be carrying an undeveloped embryo. Quite remarkable ...
Domestic ferrets use a variety of body language. Some of these behaviors are dancing, wrestling, and stalking. They will dance when they are happy and excited, hopping in every direction. Wrestling is a behavior that involves two or more ferrets. They will roll around with each other, biting and kicking, usually in a playful manner. Stalking is sneaking up on a toy or other animal in a low crouched position. Domestic ferrets have an instinct to habitually urinate and defecate in the same places, and therefore can be trained to use a litter box ...

The Brookfield Zoo outside Chicago puts gorillas like these on a diet system like Weight Watchers, staff nutritionist Jennifer Watts told CNN affiliate WLS. Each food item has a specific point value attached, and animals have limits for how many points they can accumulate. A gorilla gets two points for a cube of sugary fruit juice, while a polar bear gets one point for each of its beloved granola bars.. Zoo Atlanta doesnt use an official point system, but strives to provide a low-calorie, healthy diet for its animals too. This zoo has moved away from fruit juices for primates - now their orangutans and gorillas get Crystal Light. It may have less sugar, but they like the low-calorie alternative just as much, the zoos senior veterinarian Dr. Maria Crane said in an interview for this blog.. Zoo animals have a particular risk for becoming overweight because they do not have to forage or hunt for food the way they would in the wild, Crane said. To encourage the animals to move about, zoo staffers ...
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens ten painted dog pups and their mom, "Imara," received special enrichment in the form of a USDA-inspected goat carcass this morning in their public exhibit. Simulating a wild feeding increases the dogs mental and physical activity, provides nutritional benefits, and encourages natural sharing behavior unique to this species. Carcass feeding also provides guests with an opportunity to see some of the Zoos most active animals displaying their natural behaviors.. Other Zoos do carcass feedings, but this is a new enrichment activity for the Cincinnati Zoos carnivores. The carcasses, typically goats or pigs, are ordered by the Zoos nutritionist specifically for this purpose and have no prior affiliation to the Zoos animal collection. A carcass is prepared by first removing the head and innards to eliminate risk of disease, and then by freezing it overnight to kill any parasites.. "African painted dogs are carnivores just like us! Even though our meals look ...

Tara, a Sumatran orangutan at the Fort Wayne Childrens Zoo, delivered a healthy female baby in the early morning hours of Saturday, November 22.. The baby is the only Sumatran orangutan born in a United States zoo in 2014, so she represents a significant addition to the population of critically endangered Sumatran orangutans.. "We are thrilled with the outcome so far," said Zoo Animal Curator Mark Weldon. "Tara is doing everything she should to care for her baby.". Zoo keepers and veterinary staff expected 19-year-old Tara to give birth between mid-November and early December. They had been watching Tara by remote camera overnight for several weeks. When keepers observed Tara pacing late Friday in her off-exhibit bedroom, they suspected she was in labor and arrived at the zoo to monitor the birth. Taras labor lasted a few hours, and she delivered her baby unassisted.. Immediately following the delivery, Tara began cleaning her infant and placed it in her nest - a pile of wood wool and blankets ...
For me, the real question is not who to blame, but why anyone was in a situation in which they had to make a choice between the life of a human child and the life of an endangered teenage gorilla in the first place. Keeping wild animals in captivity is fraught with problems. This tragic choice arose only because we keep animals in zoos.. Though killing is less common at U.S. zoos compared with the regular practice of "culling" at European ones, zoos are nonetheless places that cause death. Harambes life was cut short intentionally and directly, but for many zoo animals, simply being in captivity shortens their lives. We know this is true for whales in SeaWorld. Elephants, too, die prematurely in zoos. So why have zoos?. One of the reasons often given is that zoos protect and conserve endangered wild animals. A few zoos do fund conservation efforts - the Cincinnati Zoo is one of them. These efforts are laudable, and I would hope that in light of the tragedy the Cincinnati Zoo will spend more to ...
Mysore Zoo (officially the Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens) is a 157-acre (64 ha) zoo located near the palace in Mysore, India. It is one of the oldest and most popular zoos in India, and is home to a wide range of species (168). Mysore Zoo is one of the citys most popular attractions. While mainly depending on entry fees for its financing, an adoption scheme introduced in the early 2000s has been a success. Celebrities, institutions, and animal lovers have contributed directly to the welfare of the zoo inmates. Mysore Zoo was created in 1892 on 10 acres (4.0 ha) of the summer palace of Maharaja Sri Chamaraja Wodeyar, and was originally called the Palace Zoo. The zoo was originally set up by G.H. Krumbiegel, a German landscaper and horticulturist. Over the next 10 years the zoo was expanded to 45 acres (18 ha) with spacious enclosures that are still in use. The zoo was opened to the public in 1902, and now includes a bandstand and an artificial lake. It was given to the Department of Parks ...

The porcupette is on display in the zoos courtyard enclosure, along with his mother, grandmother and other family members.. Other newborn zoo animals include a pancake tortoise and a muntjac faun named Marius. A two year-old male Asian Small Clawed Otter called Wonga has also joined the collection from a visitor attraction in Devon. The newcomer is settling in well with Reaseheaths female otter Ying and can be seen in the otter enclosure.. Reaseheaths animal collection also includes meerkats, spider monkeys, ring tailed lemurs, a serval cat, birds of prey and many reptiles, amphibians, fish and companion animals like rabbits.. As well as touring the enclosures and joining in educational activities, families can learn how to reduce their carbon footprint by joining the Pole to Pole campaign. The campaign has been adopted by leading zoos and aquariums in Europe and North America and aims to influence the energy consumption of visitors.. Additional activities over the holiday weekend include ...
We havent yet developed a plan for weaning Palu from his mother. Certainly he is of an appropriate age to be weaned, and obviously Pagi has already moved on to a new stage of independence. However, Palus situation is different from his sibling in that he is not yet slated to move to another facility. If we separate him now, he would remain at the San Diego Zoo in the near term, and that presents some challenges for us.. Those of you who have visited our Zoo know that we have a very robust population of bears. We are one of the few zoos in the world that has six species of bears exhibited: pandas, polars, brown, Andean, sloth, and sun bears. Bear Canyon is pretty full, and we dont have any open, unused, bear-friendly exhibits to move Palu to. That means that once he is separated from his mother, he would remain at Sun Bear Forest, where he would need to rotate exhibit time with Marcella.. Rotating animals on exhibit is a common practice. It allows animals to have some time out in the larger ...

Little Kurt looks like any other baby horse as he frolics playfully in his pen. He isnt afraid to kick or head-butt an intruder who gets in his way and, when hes hungry, he dashes over to his mother for milk.But 2-month-old Kurt differs from every other foal of his kind in one distinct way: Hes a clone.The rare, endangered Przewalskis horse was created from cells taken from a stallion in 1980. They sat frozen at the San Diego Zoo for 40 years before they were fused with an egg from a domestic horse.With the eggs nucleus removed, ensuring Kurt would be basically all Przewalskis horse, they were implanted in the mare who would become his mom on Aug. 6.The result, officials say, was the worlds first cloned Przewalskis horse.Scientists have cloned nearly two dozen kinds of mammals, including dogs, cats, pigs, cows and polo ponies. In 2018, researchers in China created monkeys for the first time using the cloning techniques that produced Dolly the sheep.The zoo sees Kurts birth as a ...

A month ago, it was attracting families - he says the zoo drew up to 1,000 visitors each day. He points at the foot-long hole in the camel in one of the enclosures. "This camel was pregnant, a missile went into her back," he tells us. "Look, look at her face. She was in pain when she died." [Yeah, I am *so sure* the pregnant camel was working for Hamas.

Directed by Robert Craig and written by Rajiv Joseph, the play was inspired by- but not modeled upon- 2003 news accounts of war-ravaged Baghdad in which zoo animals had been locked in their cages without food or water for who knows how long, while others had been set loose on the city or hunted by famished civilians. A literal rendering of that bizarre scenario would certainly make for high drama, but this Bengal tiger at the Baghdad Zoo is a creature of a different sort.. Like Ishmael, the gorilla in Daniel Quinns 1992 novel, Tiger (Noah Wagner) has the advantage of standing outside humanity so that he can objectively comment upon it. From the get-go, hes a philosopher and only grows more so after hes been shot dead. You see, he acted like any self-respecting tiger would and chomped off the hand of Tom (Lee Samuel Tanng), a US Marine who was taunting him with a Slim Jim. Toms fellow Marine on zoo watch, Kev (Jeff Rolle Jr.), kills the tiger, not with his bare hands, of course, but more like ...
Submitted by the Animal Health Committee, R. Eric Miller, DVM, Dipl. ACZM, Chairman. Nearly every contact with other living organisms, whether it be with humans or other animals, carries some risk of disease transmission. Diseases that are spread from animals to humans are called zoonoses (adj. = zoonotic diseases). Responsible zoos should and do make reasonable attempts to limit the risk of the spread of disease from the animals in their care to their employees and to the general public (4,9). For the general public, the risk of contracting disease from most zoo animals is minimal to nonexistent due to their distance and isolation from the animals. However, contact areas for the general public can present increased risks that can be controlled with reasonable precautions. For this paper, contact areas refers to those areas in which there is direct physical contact between animals and people. These precautions are most effective when they are part of an overall preventive medicine program for ...
Im just going to get this out of the way now; This movie sucks. In it, the zookeeper, Griffin is trying to win back his ex-girlfriend after she dumped him five years ago. Eventually, he finds out that the zoo animals can talk, and they all try to help him since he always treated them so well. But theres also another woman who works at the zoo that ends up being a second Love Interest for Griffin. His ex, on the other hand isnt interested in him if hes going to be just a zookeeper (even though he loves his job) and wants him to take a better-paying job at his brothers car dealership. Take a wild guess at how it ends. What follows is an annoying, unfunny Cliche Storm that youll be lucky to have laughed once at. The only animal that serves any purpose is the gorilla. The rest of the animals are completely meaningless to the plot, and are just there to make bad jokes and annoy the hell out of you (especially that damn monkey). The jokes and humor are the kind that youve probably already seen ...
