      I actually really like the barrier at the back of the exhibit here and viewing looks good.

      The viewing at Colchester is very good if you like looking at most of your animals through glass,and don`t mind most of the animals having no way of not been seen by the public.

      I would like to redesign this and turn it into the new 'Gelada Plateau' for the Gelada baboon group. It could be a really good exhibit- provided the lion was removed first...;)

      I think they'll keep Subu in there. But after that I certainly think they should do this. All they have to do is make the walls taller and actually add in more fake rock work and then the geladas shall have a great exhibit. They'll still have glass and will be in a more attractive and appropiate envioroment.

      That is exactly how I would enviage the transformation too.:) I agree the old Lion deserves to live out his days first though.

      The outdoor enclosure is definately more spacious than the last enclosure. But its not as well landscaped I dont think its just a slope with a heated rock really. And Subu seems to love the Heated Rock though hes on it in nearly every photo I see of him.

      I never knew that rock was heated but it explains why he's often there ! Typical cat ....... drawn to warm spots.
