      good to see that they allow construction during zoo hours which accelerates the project. at the LA zoo they don't allow construction during zoo hours.

      What will really be interesting is which zoo comes up with the best elephant exhibit, as there is a lot of money being poured into pachyderm habitats in North America.

      What a difference 5 years makes! The National Zoo spent a long time and over $50 million to create the new elephant complex and by next spring there will be 7 Asian Elephants (1.6) wandering around the paddocks. Calgary Zoo is sending its 3 females to join the current herd of 4 and this zoo continues to go from strength to strength.
