Does anyone know the movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes? Well in that movie, does anyone remember the ape sanctuary where many of the apes are mistreated by their keeper? Well in ZT2, I built a replica of that sanctuary, which was actually called the San Bruno Primate Shelter.
In my replica though, the cages are a heck of a lot bigger and with a lot more apes, and I even have named some of the apes in my replica the names of the apes that are in the movie! For example, one of my chimps is named Caesar, I have a male orangutan called Maurice, and my gorilla's name is Buck!
