      but its too small

      They're moving to the new Heart Of Africa area anyway, so it hardly matters.

      London's Okapis hardly have that much space either and i cant imagine Bristol's either. Though i assume Marwell's enclosure is of quite good size?
    • CZJimmy
      Correct me if I'm wrong, but you've never seen this enclosure have you?

      It's not "too small". Don't get me wrong, it's not massive, but it is more than adequete especially considering they will be leaving in 3 years to HoA.

      He's never seen it! People should never fully judge enclosures they've never seen IMO.

      And anyway, it's not too small. It's of an adequate size.

      judging by comments by zoogiraffe and taun, and an ariel view on zoodays, i sounds and looks too small
    • CZJimmy
      Cat-man, then why did you immediately criticise the exhibit based on other's viewpoints and a split-second cut away on TV.

      As both me and ZooMania said before, it's not massive, but is adequete.

      Cat-man, I did mention that I thought it was too small. However if you go for yourself you may form a different opinion.

      The concept is fantastic and the best Okapi housing I have seen in the UK.

      sorry Taun, when i said but its too small, i ment to say but its slightly small. but the forest concept if fab, and you right about heart of africa, sorry about judging without seeing
    • taun
      No problem, Lesson for the future is to keep your mind open and not listen to everything everyone else says until you have seen or had the experience for your'self. ;)
