Black-footed Cats in Wuppertal (1975)
Wuppertalers will recognise them from the posters: The Black-footed Cats have been promoting the Zoo over the last few years. In 1975 a pair of Black-footed Cats came to Wuppertal. None of the other animals have been so successfully bred as these small and very rare wild cats from the arid regions of southern Africa. Since 1975, some 134 young cats were born in the Wuppertal Zoo!
The first successful breeding of Gentoo Penguins in a German zoo took place in the penguin enclosure in 1975.
