Zoological & Botanical Garden gems

please can someone back up my memory - an observant frequent visitor or maybe staff -

1) is there a small bear or panda hiding in bamboo on the ground - or been moved elsewhere - looks like ivory or pale yellowed ivory color marble?

2) where ... and how are .... the two jaguars or panthers which were bred there some years ago, and relocated to China?

3)  is the small deer in the Pacific Place rainforest from the Gardens?

can you supply dates & details for these movements, around the time of An-An and Chi-Chi? this is relevant to original production of my hk diary - green making of, and continued.

hopefully someone w more knowledge will add, but from what I know:

there's a red panda in one of the cages (just near the pedestrian tunnel under road)

I believe one of the jaguars died; the other - on recent visit I made - was in big enclosure made for jaguars, above aviaries, but was very ill, from old age (inc near lame)

not sure re origin of the deer - mouse deer> - in Pacific Place rainforest (the HK Park aviary, you mean??)
