Farewell Mrs B

calendar iconPosted 1 July 2019

With sadness we announce that we have said a final goodbye to Mrs Branco.

She became suddenly unwell on Sunday and passed away surrounded by her Zoo family. Much-loved by the zoo team, supporters and visitors she has been a unique part of the Zoo and her big, beautiful personality has touched many over her 28 years.

Affectionately known as Mrs B, she was born at Adelaide Zoo in May 1991 and transferred to Hamilton Zoo in 1992 where she joined her partner Mr B. They spent their lives together until Mr B passed away in September 2016.

Mrs B loved her food and being on the receiving end of a good scratch from her keepers.

We are feeling the loss deeply and she will be very missed.
