The ZAA Excellence in Breeding Award recognizes a truly momentous captive propagation achievement that enhances the conservation of the species, whether common or endangered, in captivity. We are pleased to present the 2020 Excellence in breeding award to the Frank Buck Zoo for their breakthrough success with three-banded armadillos. The staff designed a scoring guide for daily observations to track time between cycles and to indicate with the female was close to giving birth. Seven additional offspring have been produced since the first birth in 2015.
