On March 6th 2017 Protivin Zoo reported 20 new eggs laid by the gavial crocodile AKA Gavialis gangeticus. It is a great success as it is the first time gavial laid eggs in a zoo located in temperate zone. As the zoo announced on their website, some of the eggs are very likely fertilized. With help of luck and great treat of local staff we may welcome new born gavials in near future.
