Male Asian
Florenz Zeigfeld - named him Ziggy

1936 to 1937 - Singer's Midgets
Brookfield Zoo
Died Oct. 27, 1975



After 1941, Ziggy was uncontrollable, and could not be kept outside, so he stayed inside his stable from 1941-1971, when through donations, the facilities were rebuilt in a way, so he could safely have acces to an outside enclosure.

1975: Fell into the eight-foot dry moat inside the stable, and was severly injured. Lewis write in his book, "I Loved Rogues," Stretching as far as he could, he lashed at a keeper across the moat, lost his balance and pitched in headfirst.

On October 28, 1975, he died.
