    So the heads are missing. Ok that's fine what really happen to the animals... how do they die?

    Something behind this.CID must investigate on it.

    Behind these Animal skulls there is a story. “National Zoological Director Obege Awadanaya Pinisai”

    The Vets may have taken the skulls to conduct further medical experiments.

    Yes. This is something to trap someone. Keeping in the freezer is high cost. If docter keeping skull is good, can teach to some people. There are live things are lost. Talking about dead animales. Funny guys.

    They are innocent until proven guilty. Who knows one of their enemies might have done this in order to set them up.

    18 years a ago when i was in the zoo, i was so in love with Arapima's. I was looking at them for some time. A guy in a khaki shorts approched as said if i would like to buy one from him!!!!!!! And the conversation rolled and he showed me these two beutiful babies about 5inchers each and was offerd for
    Rs 12,500.00 . Of cause i did not buy but if this can happen,
