      I love "artist's impressions of..."

      They're always such wonderful places. ;)

      What are the chances that the actual exhibit will look like this?

      How many manatees will actually be in the exhibit?

      When will the actual exhibit open?

      Will I ever stop asking questions?

      Apparently I will.

      It's anyone's guess how this exhibit will turn out... the park officials are boasting that this will be one of the largest freshwater exhibit tanks in the world (2,000 cubic metres).

      If all of the Zoo's manatees (or managongs if you believe the artist) move here, there will be at least 9.

      We'll know if the artist's impression is accurate in December if there aren't anymore construction delays...
