Fang is last, but not least, of the Bred 4 the Wild Programme birds. He is the third chick of the 2019 breeding season and gets his name from the escarpment peaks on which his nest of origin is found. Fang is a small, unassuming male, who hatched a whole six weeks after the first chick of the season, from an egg that we presumed was unviable. This extended time delay is thought to be because his parents could have lost their first clutch and needed to lay again. Although this late starter seems a shy and gentle juvenile, he is a valuable part of the captive breeding group hoped to bring the southern bearded vulture back from the brink of extinction.
