Zambi Wildlife Retreat  We are not open to the public, as we are currently applying for our license with the NSW government. We do not hold a license to exhibit at this time.

When you’re trying to take a cat nap, but the neighbours insist on partying until all hours of the morning...

TRUST IS A FRAGILE THING.
EASY TO BREAK, EASY TO LOSE AND ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO EVER GET BACK...
.
UPDATE on our two rescues, Sammy & Kovu (Czechoslovakian Wolf Dogs)
.
Initially they were very cautious and kept their distance, but with lots of TLC, they are now thriving.
.
They love their swims in the dam or their pool on a hot day and enjoy long walks around the property at @zambi_wildlife_retreat.🐺
.
•The dog breed traces its original lineage to an experiment conducted in 1955 by the Czech military.
•Initially the breeding working line began with German Shepherd Dogs & Carpathian(Eurasion) wolves.
•Not surprisingly, the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog is considerably harder to train than the average dog.
•They can be extremely strong-willed and do not like to do anything without seeing a reason to do so.
•They are also very intelligent and get bored quickly.
•Wolfdogs do not bark, however, they do howl and make other noises.
•Their howl can be very loud, but they have to be trained to bark, and this can be difficult for Wolfdogs because it is not natural.
•They need, and require firm leadership, thus making them not an ideal household pet.
•Similar to the Australian dingo they have a strong prey drive and also the instinct to roam. If you are thinking to yourself ‘gee, I’d love to get a wolf dog, sadly, if you do there is a high chance it will end up in a rescue facility.

Since losing much of her sight, Indira's long time carer, Zambi Director Donna, makes sure the special tiger is given the extra care she deserves.
The current extreme heat conditions has seen temperatures hit over 40 degrees at Zambi and even though all the animals have pools and misting systems to keep them comfortable, nothing beats a refreshing cool down in the new tiger rock pool that was kindly donated by @narellanpoolsillawarrasthsyd . Indira can't take herself for a swim anymore and needs Donna's assistance, but Donna is definitely not complaining as @zerns from the @dailytelegraph discovered.

When cats lick their fur to clean up, they’re using a tool that’s better designed than your typical washcloth.

Their tongues have tiny hooks called papillae. When they glide across the fur, it acts like a comb.

So they de-tangle and remove mats in their fur as they bathe. The process also helps them stay comfortable.

They spread a natural oil that’s in their skin, it kind of acts as an insulator and can keep them warm in winter.

In hot weather, spreading the saliva all over their coats helps them stay cool. As the saliva evaporates, it releases heat from the body. (Cats also sweat, but only through their paws.)

FACTS ABOUT TIGER WHISKERS
Tigers have a well-developed sense of touch that they use to navigate in darkness, detect danger and attack prey.
.
Tigers have five different types of whiskers that detect sensory information and are differentiated by their location on the body.
.
Whiskers differ from guard hairs in that they are thicker, more deeply rooted in the skin and surrounded by a small capsule of blood.
.
The root of the whisker displaces the blood when the whisker comes into contact with something thereby amplifying the movement.
.
Sensory nerves detect this movement and send signals to the brain for interpretation.

THE 5 TYPES OF WHISKERS ARE:
1. The mystacial whiskers are located on the tiger's muzzle (snout) and are used when attacking prey and navigating in the dark. The tiger uses these whiskers to sense where they should inflict a bite. When navigating through darkness the tiger's pupils dilate to let more light enter the eye to increase their vision. The dilated pupils of their eyes assist their night vision but makes focusing on objects up-close difficult. The tiger's mystacial whiskers help it feel its way through the dark.
2. Superciliary whiskers are located above the eyes.
3. Cheek whiskers are located just behind the mystacial whiskers on the cheeks.
4. Carpal whiskers are located on the back of the tiger's front legs.
5. Tylotrich whiskers are located randomly throughout the body.

The facial whiskers of the tiger are about 15 centimeters (six inches) in length. The facial area of the tiger has numerous sensory neurons that can detect even the slightest change in air pressure when passing by an object.
