Season 1 / Episodes 1
Maleos have interesting reproductive lives. A female will dig a pit and take the sand’s temperature at different depths with its beak. When conditions are right, she’ll lay an egg that is incubated in warm, volcanic sand. The Bronx Zoo has developed standards to breed and rear chicks of this endangered species.
Watch this story, and others, on "THE ZOO," the first-ever docuseries about WCS’s Bronx Zoo, on Animal Planet or AnimalPlanetGo.com.
