I am pleased to say our beautiful Black-necked Stork (also commonly know as the Jabiru), is back in training for our free-flight show. Djagarna, who has been on vacation, is stoked to be back exploring our Animal Planet Crocoseum for her return to the show. After a day of play, in the afternoon she walks into her very own travel crate and is wheeled down to the Crocoseum; a ride she looks forward to, as she is always beside her 'Jabmobile' awaiting our arrival each day.
