    New Suzhou Zoo Now Open | 新动物园开业
    Date/Time: 2016/11/03
    Synopsis:
    The old Suzhou Zoo is no more. The animals have been moved from the downtown Suzhou Baita Lu location to their spacious new home and are settling in. Shangfang Shan Forest Animal World Zoo Park replaces the old Suzhou Zoo and is now open to the public. There are 67 hectares with more than 1000 animals and 100 species including white tigers, pumas, Asian elephants, black bears, hornbills, toucans and more. However, the Suzhou Zoo’s most famous residents didn’t make the move. The pair of Yangtze giant softshell turtles (Rafetus swinhoei) are two of the only three remaining on earth. The other one is in Vietnam. The two in China at the Suzhou Zoo (a male and female) are both believed to be greater than 100 years of age, with the female considered to be the only remaining female of the species left on earth. The two Rafetus swinhoei are considered too fragile to move to a new location, so will stay on at their old home, with no visitors allowed, at least for the time being.

    老的苏州动物园现在已经关门了。原来位于苏州市区白塔路动物园里的动物们被转移到了新家,苏州上方山动物世界。新的动物园占地67公顷,有超过1000只动物和100种物种,包括白虎、美洲狮、亚洲象、黑熊、犀鸟、巨嘴鸟等等。但是原来苏州动物园最著名的住客——全世界仅存的3只斑鳖的其中两只(另外一只在越南)却没有搬家。这两只生活在苏州动物园的斑鳖(一雄一雌)的年龄据称已超过100岁。其中的雌性斑鳖有可能是此物种在地球上的最后一只。这两只斑鳖不适合搬迁,他们将留在苏州动物园旧址,暂时也不会再有游客来打扰他们了。
