Aquarium launches desperate search to save a species down to 3 individuals
Aquarists at ZSL London Zoo have launched a worldwide appeal to find a female mate for a fish species that is believed to have gone extinct in the wild.
The fish, Mangarahara cichlid (Ptychochromis Insolitus), was once found in the Mangarahara River in Madagascar, but dams have dried up its habitat. The last two known individuals now reside at ZSL London Zoo’s Aquarium. But both are male.
The zoo is therefore asking any zoos or aquarium keepers who may have females to contact it.
that is a stunning fish!
it is nice and big !:-D
