Animals in our sanctuary

Date of arrival

De dieren uit de tijd dat De Zonnegloed nog enkel een educatieve kinderboerderij was, blijven natuurlijk ook op De Zonnegloed wonen.    Zwaan 1 is ook een dier die hier al van in dat prille begin aanwezig was voordat we een Sanctuary werden.

Date of arrival

Aqua comes from an animal shelter in the Netherlands. The animal was confiscated by a private individual who did not give the animal the proper care.

Where does he feel most at home?

The mute swan is found naturally mainly in temperate areas of Europe across western Asia, as far east as the Russian Maritimes, near Sidemi.

That's his favourite food?

The food usually consists of water plants, which are found in shallow water. Here their long neck comes in handy. In the absence of plants, a swan also eats small fish such as roaches.

Fun fact

The name 'mute swan' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species.
