      Like the exhibit, the rock work and the dry shrubs really make it look like the Kalahari Desert.

      interesting exhibit... I wonder what the general public think of things like elephant skulls in the enclosures?

      I've read that the Minnesota Zoo has built their entrance such that visitors encounter several exhibits of active, charismatic species to draw them into the zoo. The species mentioned were snow monkeys, African penguins, and meerkats. Is this the meerkat exhibit at the entrance complex? What do they do when winter comes?

      This meerkat exhibit was located in the Central Plaza area, which serves as the entrance to Russia's Grizzly Coast, but I'm not sure that it is in existence anymore. Almost all of the zoo's African animals are located in the Tropics Trail building, although some summers the zoo essentially rents animals seasonally (giraffe, ostrich, antelope, etc) and that might well be the case here as well.
    There are no comments to display.
