My aurochs models at the Alpenzoo Innsbruck

My two little models of  aurochs bull and cow (for a precise description see here) are now on permanent display at the Alpenzoo Innsbruck, for anyone who would like to see them in real:
The Alpenzoo Innsbruck is a zoo in Innsbruck, Austria. It has virtually all vertebrate species living in the alpes, and I can definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in Central European wildlife. It also has a little herd of wisent, I think it is currently the only Austrian zoo having this species on display.


  1. There are several other institutions in Austria with Wisent as well:

    Grünau im Almtal (Cumberland-Wildpark)
    Innsbruck (Alpenzoo)
    Rosegg (Wildpark)
    Schlosshof (Tierpark Schloss Hof)
    Wien (Lainzer Tiergarten)

    So the species is visible in more places in the country

    1. Thanks for the list, but I have one remark: The wisent at the Lainzer Tiergarten was brought to the Alpenzoo few years ago.
