Just a random fact or a random question.

1. I looked it up and found out the zoo has 2,800 animals and 630 species after thinking that they had 1900 animals and about 520 species.
2. As for the question, how do you pronounce Suci? I've always pronounced "SOO-CHEE", but now I'm having second thoughts.

Suci is pronounced "SUE CHEE," so you've been pronouncing it correctly.

hey everyone this is my very first review on a zoo. This was me and my gf 2nd visit to the cincinnati zoo.one thing i take out of all of this is how much has changed since september 2011 on my last visit. Cincinnati is def a top ten zoo for there amazing exhibits and unique species. The staff is friendly and what makes this zoo what it is.Elephant Reserve was great with the 3 female asian elephants and 1 male. Lemur Lookout was closed & Dragons! was awesome. Cincy zoo have to be one of the few zoos to exhibit numerous species of monitors. what a experience. Manatee springs was lovely with a variety wildlife from florida which was cool.Heard the white lions roar real loud which was cool. Even thou construction is going on for cat canyon will saw the both Black & indian rhino,zebra,flamingos and even the okapi. we missed the bongo & yellow backed duiker. but anyways back to cat canyon which by the way the snow leopard exhibit will be hands down the best in the country in my opinion for the height and mountainous range style exhibit. both siamangs and buff cheeked gibbons were active. to catch a glimpse of the chinese alligators in the soon to be remodeled reptil house was a pleasure along the other variety of species but the razo island skink was not on exhibit the only species in this country if not mistaken. the new remodeled wolf woods was fun. we both liked the otter exhibit. which was one of the difference from our first visit. there was construction going on.To see my 2nd species of Bird-of-paradise(Raggiana) made Wings of the world a all time fav in my books. but one ? are there really magellanic penguins in there they looked like african to me. and where did the laughing kookaburra go theres a barred owl in its exhibit?fed a Giraffe at giraffe ridge was a blast but disappointed they didnt have the cheetah encounter opened missed it on are first visit. Now saving the best for last to see a sumatran rhino in captivity is awesome and to have cincinnati zoo take great care for this animals is a blessing. Thks cincinnati zoo. Its was great to see the polar bears swimming my fav animal of all time even thou in my opinion there exhibit is average. Night Hunters yes baby love this one with a great lineup of animals.Tayra,Bearcat,Caracal,Fennec fox,Bat eared fox which has babies exhibit is closed,fishing cat,bobcat,eursian eagle owl,pallas cat,fossa,aardwolf,clouded leopard,garnetts galago & aardvark share a exhibit. Banded palm civet was moved from jungle trails to night hunters but we missed him never saw him and im mad but what makes night hunters a cool exhibit is the banded palm civet has a clear glass in front of the clouded leopard so if the banded palm civet was out it would look like your seein both species in one whole exhibit which was pretty cool,ocelot,vampire bat,sand cat and black footed cat.And last but Not least Jungle Trails. You have Mueller Gibbons greet you with their long whooping calls. orangutans,white handed gibbons,francois langurs,lion tailed macaques are in the asian part. African part Bonobos which have the best exhibit out of anyone. Coquerel's sifaka are a new addition,Aye-aye,Bamboo lemur and Potto share a spacious exhibit and Large-spotted Genet with kits was so cute.

1. Thank you for giving us a summary of how much you LIKED it, a tough thing for other Zoochaters to say about this zoo.
2. It is amazing that you say that the snow leopard exhibit will be going from the worst in the county to the best.
3. Yes the Razo island skink is the only one in captivity.
4. The zoo has about 5 BOP's, they even sometimes turn to aviary into two parts and put one in each part.
5. Yep those are Magellanic penguins. You can tell the difference between them and African by the pink spots on their face.
6. The barred owl rotates with the kookaburra but is in there permanately during the winter months.
7. And thanks for not putting down the polar bear exhibits, another thing for people that have a tough time doing.
8. Yep the civet (loris) exhibit was designed for a predator and prey theme.
9. Also Indian flying foxes share with the aardvarks and the galagos.
10. What is the line up for the Asian building in Jungle Trails? Is the loris in there? What was in the middle, nocturnal exhibit between the cloud rats and the sugar gliders?
11. Thanks again for this overview!
12. Did you read my little "cheat sheet"? Love the photos.

Here's a video of the zoo's two new Bennett's Wallaby joeys.

Here's a fun video of one of the zoo's Red River Hogs racing the winner of Cincinnati's Flying Pig Marathon.

Here's a video about sustainable palm oil that showcases the zoo's new app to distinguish products made with sustainable palm oil.

You won't believe me when I say this, but I did some research and the zoo has bred about 70 red pandas in 30 or so years. And all of them were born in the summer so I'm suspecting we will have a baby red panda in the summer since another male came to the zoo in November. Does 70 seem right you?

Did anyone else know that the zoo was haunted? Well apparently.

Cat Canyon Construction | Cincinnati Zoo Blog
Finally we have a Cat Canyon construction update from the zoo's blog! Included in the update are pictures of the work-in-progress snow leopard enclosure and tiger (only one of the two) exhibits.

Also, three miniature pig piglets will be arriving at the zoo next week and will go on display in the nursery.

I have another trip to the zoo planned for May 10th, and this time it will be during regular zoo hours Hopefully I will be able to see the new additions I missed when I visited during Tunes and Blooms.

Now I'm wondering if the snow leopard exhibit will be the best.
