In the winter issue of Zoo Matters, you can learn about the feisty African hunting dogs at the zoo, including details of their pack mentality and tendencies. The snow leopard takes centre stage as well. Find out how these fascinating creatures fend for themselves at sub freezing temperatures and how Dublin Zoo were one of the first zoos to hand rear a snow leopard cub.
Stephen Butler, curator of horticulture at Dublin Zoo, tells readers about the unique kingdom that is fungi, explaining how different they are from most every other organism known. In the Kids Corner, make sure to do the word search and spot the difference between two pictures.
