Two marabou storks settled in the Moscow Zoo
The press service of the Moscow Zoo reported on the telegram channel about the arrival of new residents in the institution. Two marabou storks moved from a safari park in Krasnodar to the capital. After passing quarantine, they settled in the new exhibition “Aviary”.
The new residents' names are Ophelia and Einstein. These are young birds. Marabou get along well, but it is difficult to say whether they are a couple or not. Sometimes there are squabbles between them, but in general these birds live peacefully.
Marabou are friendly. They quickly adapted and began communicating with employees and taking food from their hands. As soon as Ophelia and Einstein entered the new enclosure, they immediately began to examine it and study everything.
Birds also seek to interact with zoo visitors. However, staff at the institution warn that marabou have very powerful and sharp beaks. Therefore, under no circumstances should you reach out to them with your hands or any objects.
At the zoo, marabou are fed fish, rodents and insects. Their favorite fish is herring, and they prefer heads.
