      I wonder why other zoos don't renovate their old lion houses like Bronx Zoo did?
    • snowleopard
      Money, money, money. Not that many zoos have the financial clout of the Bronx. That spiny desert habitat in the photo holds 2 lemur species, and probably cost hundreds of thousands to create.

      But most of the zoos that have old buildings are some of the main zoos in North America (f.e. Lincoln Park zoo's lion house and National Zoo's ape house), so I'm sure they have some money.

      Which species of lemurs live in here?
    • mstickmanp
      I think Collared Lemurs and Ring-tailed Lemurs live there. There is also birds and Madagascar Radiated Tortoise living there.
    • snowleopard
      You are perfectly correct on the animal species in the photo mstickmanp. I also agree with your point in terms of the ancient animal buildings...either renovate them or bulldoze them!

      Are some of the plants real or is everything entirely fake?
    • snowleopard
      It's a mixture of both real and fake...
