The Zoo at Schönbrunn

12 Nov

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that really is a bat, or more precisely a fruit bat, hanging on that laundry rack. His name is Banshi and he is being raised by a zookeeper at Schönbrunn after his mother rejected him.

The Schönbrunn Zoo is not only the oldest zoo in Europe, it also often wins prizes for how good it is. One reason is that they have tremendous success with new-born and young animals, as one can see.
