Not that I'm expecting the snow leopard exhibit to be the "best" snow leopard exhibit, but I do think that it is too early to be judging it. It is obviously still a work in progress, and the photo does not show the entire exhibit area to begin with.

Also, for those interested, here are the relatively new behind-the-scenes experiences that the zoo offers:

The zoo has a new summer visitor and activity guide. It is also posted online (link below) where you can read all the pages.

http://cincinnatizoo.org/wp-content/.../EA-guide2.pdf

Cover of the guide says Cat Canyon opens June 30 (2012). This will be HUGELY DISAPPOINTING to one group of people. The Feline Conservation Federation is holding their annual conference in Cincinnati this year at the beginning of June. I believe their designated zoo day is Friday, June 8th. They are there just for the cats and obviously had hoped the exhibit would be open when they scheduled the conference dates. UK fans of Port Lympne may be interested to note that Neville Buck is one of the featured speakers at the conference.

Sadly, that is not a very hard task to accomplish. (The only great snow leopard exhibits as far as I can tell are one in Switzerland and two in Sweden).

Pancake Tortoises, and Desert Grassland Whiptail Lizards have also been born. Also for a while the zoo's website said that the feathertail gliders didn't have a location, now it is saying that they are in Jungle Trails. I wonder if this is just a mis-hap since the sugar gliders were taken off the website even though they shouldn't have been.

Sari, the female Bactrian Camel, gave birth to a male calf on April 23rd. He will go on exhibit after 10:30 a.m. on April 26th. The zoo has a poll on their website with three possible names for the calf: Henry, Lyn, and Cain.

Bronx has the best I've seen. It's on a huge hillside full of trees and rocks. Could be best in the world.

I have been to Bronx - it is the best one in the US (although possibly tied now with the new one at their affiliate Central park). But based on the photos I have seen it cannot compare to the three I mentioned (Zurich Zoo, Kolmarden Wildlife Park, Nordens Ark).

Here's quick video about the newest baby Garnett's Galagos, 0.0.2 born March 3rd.

Another video of the camel birth. This video shows more of the actual birth and the minutes after; Thane Maynard is not talking during this one.

This is an article I made up about the zoo, I have been working on it since March and and it is finally complete. This even shows former exhibits, currents exhibits, records, and also this years Zoo Babies.

There have also been Australian walking sticks born.

Kudu21. Thanks a bunch for showing the videos, it is a miracle and unexpected that the zoo actually had a camel birth.
