      Ah, Wrigley Field, the first and only zoo to exhibit the critically endangered Chicago Cub Champions and their infamous breeding program. They didn't even get any births until just two years ago.

      @Yi Qi Actually, many years ago they had two back to back births in 1907 and 1908. Though since then breeding was halted because a goat broke into the enclosure (Don't ask how that effected it).

      In all seriousness, why is a picture of Wrigley Field here?
    • pachyderm pro
      This is the "United States - Other" part of the gallery. This is in the United States and is certainly an "other".

      Speaking of 1900's, they haven't updated their only exhibit in years. Don't Chicago Cub Champions prefer montane forests to open grassland?

      I must say that the viewing opportunities appear to be excellent for the species they display. I like how much grass is provided, although it would look much more naturalistic if they let the grass grow longer. My only complaint is that the fences are in plain sight of the visitors thus ruining the feeling of being in the wild.

      @TZDugong I get the joke but they're actually the most naturalistic walls you'll find in all of sports;)

      @Moebelle true about the walls as there is a decent amount of vegetation. Then again, naturalistic sports walls are like Orangutan enclosures, there aren’t many good ones!

      Isn’t it kind of funny that the species we are looking at is the same species as us?
