      This looks fantastic.

      Dare I suggest that I have found a zoo here that you haven't visited, Maguari? :p I would have thought you would have made a point of seeing the Papiliorama long ago because of the Nocturama.
    • Maguari
      Ha! :D

      No, I've not made it there yet - though you're right in saying it's long been on my small-mammal radar!

      And I assume that would be for the pacas, couendus, various bats and tayras? I actually managed to see a paca swim when I visited the Nocturama. Quite a sight (even though it was very dark).
    • Maguari
      Yes indeed - particularly the pacas as this was one of the first places they turned up!
