      Great viewing area, it must be awsome seeing the dogs next to the window.

      The zoo has at least a dozen african wild dogs, which I think is the second most in North America. The Mountain View Conservation Centre in Langley (Canada) had exactly 32 when I visited early in 2008.

      Looks like a really nice exhibit, but judging from pictures only, I think Woodland Park's wild dog exhibit does a better job of invoking the African savannah.

      Didnt this enclosure house Okapi at one time?
    • Ungulate
      Yes, you are correct okapikpr - for a while there were okapi on display both here and in Congo.

      A ridiculous question probably, but was there glass viewing for the Okapis back then? I'll guess no...:rolleyes:
    • reduakari
      You are correct--there was no glass. The exhibit was designed for gerenuk, but never housed them. Originally home to slender-horned gazelle, then okapis, now expanded and improved for wild dogs.
    • BeardsleyZooFan
      Ok, thanks.:)

      Oh, what I would give to see those gerenuks there today... :rolleyes: Have they ever been exhibited at the Bronx before?

      And what about the slender-horned gazelles? I saw them on my visit this past April, but sometimes there's nothing in the exhibit, and from videos I've seen on YouTube, n'yalas are occasionally in there... Anyone know why?
