Two 1,800-Year-Old Sarcophagi Discovered at Ramat Gan Safari Park


An expansive new facility currently being built at Ramat Gan Safari Park will be an important addition to its wildlife hospital. The new complex, designed to provide advanced veterinary services for birds and mammals, includes a specialized operating theater and a large bird nursery that will provide quiet, heated housing for the frequent feeds needed during the chick-rearing seasons.
