History of Papuanica
Papuanica is a huge tropical island, blooming and free. Papuan women - or daughters of harmony - live on their own, not obeying kings and lords from the mainland. Islanders do not fight wars or make alliances. Although they welcome guests in any season, they do not want to depend on the will of strangers.
The Papuan Lei-Lai Festival is the loudest and most fun festival in the south of Akrasia. The holiday takes place annually and lasts for several days, but preparation for it can last for weeks. Lei-lai is famous for the dance of the same name, flower garlands, piñatas and lavish treats.
The name Lei-bark is difficult to translate from the ancient dialect: “Lei” means just a flower garland, but “bark” is a polysemantic word that implies both fun and serenity, and even an afternoon nap in a palm shade.
Lei-lai is dedicated to the feat of the Guardian of Albion, who saved Papuanica from a volcanic eruption hundreds of years ago. This is not only a fun festivities, but also a celebration of the celebration of life.

These birds very rarely breed in captivity.
Chicks of Papuan rhino birds hatched for the first time in the capital's zoo. This was reported on the official website of the mayor of Moscow with reference to the words of the director of the zoo Svetlana Akulova.
According to her, Papuan rhino birds are also called Papuan kalao. The appearance of chicks of this species is an important event for the zoo.
It is noted that Papuan Kalao very rarely give offspring in captivity.
This species of feathered creatures is listed in the International Red Book. Two exotic birds, originally from New Guinea, arrived at the capital's zoo in 2015, but they managed to achieve a new addition to the family only five years later.
After birth, the chick lived for three months in the nest next to its mother. When the baby got stronger, changed the fluff to adult plumage, grew up, he left the secluded dwelling. Now you can admire it in the "House of Birds" pavilion located in the old territory.
It is worth noting that in their natural environment, the female Papuan rhino bird equips nests in the hollows of trees and breeds offspring there. From the inside, the bird practically walled up its dwelling with clay, rotten wood and food debris. The expectant mother leaves only a small gap through which the male passes food to her.
In the zoo, zoologists offered the bird a cozy house and a barrel with a small hole as a nest. The bird preferred the barrel. The male, like relatives in the wild, fed her through a small hole.
Now the baby kalao most often sits on the upper branches of acacias with his parents. They still feed him, the chick will start feeding on his own in about a month.
So far, the baby's neck and head are covered with yellow feathers, but over time they will acquire the characteristic reddish-brown tint for this species.
Papuan hornbirds live in New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago, the Solomon and Moluccas.
Papuan hornbirds live in New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago, the Solomon and Moluccas. They prefer to nest in dense tropical forests.
These birds are very large, the length of their body, including the tail, is 60–80 centimeters, and their weight can reach two kilograms. Most of the body is covered with black feathers, the tail and cheeks are white. In females, the plumage on the head is black, in males - reddish-brown. A distinctive feature of hornbills is their huge bent down beaks with horny outgrowths in the form of transverse folds.
They feed on small invertebrates, insects and fruits. Wild birds can eat land crabs and also love honeycombs. Due to their too short tongue, they cannot eat from the ground. The birds have to toss food and pick it up in such a way that it hits right into the throat.
This year, in addition to the baby kalao, the Moscow Zoo also gave birth to rare curly pelicans, bush dogs and puppies of a maned wolf, one of the rarest representatives of the canine family.
In addition, in March, the zoo was replenished with chicks of Humboldt penguins. Now the zoo is home to the largest group of these birds in Russia, consisting of nine breeding pairs and more than a dozen individuals of different ages - from babies to very adult penguins. There are 35 individuals in total.
In addition, in spring, a baby of a rare ring-tailed lemur and a chick of a black stork were born, and in June, a baby of a huge clouded rat. From July on the Big Pond you can see newborn pink and red flamingos.
