In a massive action against the illegal trade in animals and plants, the Dutch government seized a huge amount of illegal products over the past months. Among the items seized were 14 thousand dead seahorses, three elephant legs, a polar bear skin, and 77 kilos of scales from the very endangered African ant eater, the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality announced.
The Netherlands' baby twin polar bears had their first outing this Thursday.
One of the polar bear triplets that were born in Ouwehands Zoo on November 22nd, has died. Using images from the nursery, the zookeepers have determined that only two of the cubs are still alive.
