      Wow! Practically the last of its kind. Do you have any photos of the enclosure that they are kept in?
    • alexkant
      Yes! You could see two pictures here: zoo.asp

      Is this your website. I've been visiting it longer then I've been visiting ZooChat (I've been visiting ZooChat for over a year before I joined).

      Yes. it's my site. You are welcome, I update it after every visit of zoo.

      Oh well it's a very nice website. I think another visit to the U.S. is do, though. All the zoos and aquariums you visited have changed greatly since your last visit. For example, the Smithsonian National Zoo is finishing a huge renovation of the American Trail and the Asian Elephant exhibit and the Bronx Zoo undergoes some kind of change just about every year (their Sumatran Rhino has since died and now the exhibit has recently been renovated and given to Southern White Rhinos). The Cincinnati Zoo still has two Sum. Rhinos and they sent a third to the Los Angeles Zoo (not on exhibit, though). Also there are two aquariums and one zoo (there are a few non AZA ones too) in my state of Connecticut that might interest a visit of yours. They are the Maritime Aquarium (very small, though but the did do an expansion), Mystic Aquarium (top notch place home to four Beluga Whales, two Northern Fur Seals, African Penguins, and they plan on adding dolphins and sea otters in the upcoming year. They are one of only four places in North America that have Steller Sea Lions), and Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo (it's small but it has several records. It has held both the oldest Andean Condor in the world (age around 80), currently has the world's oldest Black Howler Monkey (age 24), has had several successful AI attempts on their female Brazilian Ocelot (first zoo to breed a small wild cat for conservation purposes), and were the first zoo in the Northeast U.S. to have and breed Chacoan Peccaries. They are currently undergoing an expansion).
      Your site actually helped inspire me to make one of my own very similar (except without so many of my own pictures)
      Some of your pictures are on there but I cite your website on the homepage. All of my pictures have a bolded + under them.
    There are no comments to display.
