We visit the East London Zoo regularly and this visit we assisted with moving the 3 Grey Wolves back to their old (now renovated) enclosure.


While the vet, Dr Luis, was there, we also observed the stitching up of a Black-Backed Jackal’s lip. He had previously had a burst abscess and whilst the wound healed, it left him with a lump and a split lip. He also had a full health check as he is 18 years old. The current record we have found for a captive jackal is 16.7 years so when it is verified, he may become the new record holder! (Normally they live to 7years in the wild!)
