      Still lacks some cover, I would like zoos that exhibit gorillas like this (with glass viewing) to build some sort of cameo netting canopy.

      I have been working on a few designs but with some problems of if the structure failed it could lead to escape's.

      However it does have a lot of shrubs to help.

      It is being developed in Milan l belive a light weigh inredibly strong mesh. So far used on Orangs, Leopards, gibbons. That l know of, of course it would still require a framework.

      Ah that carlosmesh stuff? Basically chainlink made of wire rope? That's used in quite a few places in the UK.

      I was think more of how it is spanned and what you would need in terms on strength to stop it failing along the inmates to climb out.

      According to their Master Plan, I believe the Primate House will be demolished and a new entry plaza will be constructed for those ariving by bus. It does not say were the new Primate House will be located though.
