1. The Trevor Zoo is home to two white-naped cranes, Sprick and Sprock. This pair has been together since 2007. The white-naped crane is an endangered species and is part of AZA’s Species Survival Plan program.

    Males and females mate for life. White-naped cranes develop unison calls in the second or third year of life which aid in initiation, development of pair bonds. Female lays 1-3 white eggs in platform nest. Incubation period lasts 28-36 days. Both the male and female participate in incubation.

    As of 2006, it was the fourth rarest crane in the world. The wild population was approximately 4,900-5,300, and North America had a captive population of 90, including our two friends here. This species currently benefits from the shelter provided by the 24 mile-wide Korean Demilitarized Zone.

    Since 1994, AZA institutions including the Trevor Zoo have sent crane eggs to Russia to be reared at the Khinganski Nature Reserve and released into the wild.

    Come visit the Trevor Zoo and see these magnificent birds in person.

  3. The Trevor Zoo is home to three Red Foxes: Foxy, Rojo, and Zoro. Rojo and Zoro are the typical red color, but Foxy is silver and often mistaken for an Arctic Fox. But there are more than 80 color mutations of Red Foxes.

    In the wild, red foxes eat small rodents and rabbits, bird eggs, insects, fruit, nuts, vegetation, and carrion. In season, fruit can comprise as much as 90% of their diet. In captivity, they eat dog kibble, mice, chicks, and apples.

    There are no threats to the survival of the red fox. They adapt well to human encroachment. However, they are often killed for sport and or predator control, hunted for pelts, or slaughtered for rabies control. With the clearing of forests, red foxes have increased in both abundance and range, despite being persecuted as a pest.

    Their range goes from the Arctic circle to North African and Central American deserts and Asiatic steppes; Arctic tundra to European city centers. Their natural southern limit is Sudan.

    They prefer woods, farmland, and marshes. Red foxes sleep outside, even in freezing weather, using a den mainly for refuge or raising kits.

    Come visit the Trevor Zoo and meet our foxes in person.

  4. The Trevor Zoo is home to numerous birds of prey native from North America including Red-tailed Hawks, Prairie Falcons, Great Horned Owls, Snow Owls, Screech Owls, Barred Owls, and Saw-Whet Owls.

    Many of these birds are not endangered in their natural habitats. But most of these animals in our collection are rehab birds. That means they were once wild animals but were injured, brought to the Trevor Zoo for rehabilitation, and then couldn’t be released in the wild due to their condition. In most cases they can no longer fly and wouldn’t be able to survive on their own.

    A lot of work goes on behind the scenes into helping these animals. We often field calls from the general public about what to do when they find injured or abandoned animals. In most cases it is best to leave the animals alone. Every year, many people upset the lives of young wildlife when they only mean to help. They take fledgling songbirds, young rabbits or other animals from the wild in a mistaken attempt to save them.
    For general guidelines about what to do, please check out this webpage from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation:

  5. Red Necked Wallabies are native to southeastern coastal Australia and Tasmania. In the wild, wallabies eat native grasses. In captivity, they eat grain pellets, primate biscuits, dog kibble, oats, calf manna, cereal, bread, fruit, and vegetables. Males are larger than females, and have larger forelimbs. They use them for boxing or holding the shoulders of another male while they kick with their powerful hind legs.

    After mating, embryo may remain dormant for up to two years, or until the mother’s pouch has been vacated by the previous joey. Immature newborn crawls up mother’s abdomen and attaches to a teat in its mother’s pouch. It remains there for about 40 weeks and then vacates the pouch.
