      The Indoor hippo house seems to be the new vogue for the larger zoos in Europe with W Berlin leading the way, with Copenhagen, Hanover and now Cologne following on, my one point about this house seems to be the lack of separation facilities for the hippos.

      It's nice to see that hippos are finaly being taken good care off. And I think you can just see the edge of some stable boxes, just behind the back wall, opposite the sitatunga's stable. Not sure though...

      I could figure out the rest except bauffenster

      Did this exhibit ever get built as displayed here, and if so, how is it working out?
    There are no comments to display.
