Old pictures - Borås Zoo in 1968

I have found a few more old zoo photographs from my childhood in another photo album (see earlier uploads in the Borås and Kolmården galleries). The pictures in this album were dated so I know when they were taken. Here is a series of pictures from Borås Zoo, taken in 1968. This one is a snapshot from the 23 000 square meter big savanna. Groundbreaking when it was opened in the beginning of the 1960s and still a bit special today, since African elephants has always been mixed with lots of other species in this enclosure.

      Wow, elephants in a large mixed-species savanna, that is fantastic! If they have been doing it for that long, how come no one else can do it? (Although I have heard rumors that a certain new elephant exhibit that opens later this year in the U.S. may try it).
