If your dream comes true, as my dream to have a small, but modern zoo with fewer animals but with muc more space for them (also for reptiles, eg for snakes, not square terariums, but real enclosures eg. 3x9 metres for snakes) hopefully as soonest possible (to earn enough money), wich species of animals you will choose to keep first. I will not choose some relatively rare and at the same time very charizmatic zoo animals (eg. okapis, spectacled bears or black rhinoceros) (because I don't have much practical experience) and to be real, most charizmatic animasl are almost imposible to obtain, especially if you are a beginner in the world of zoo business. So my question, wich 9 species of mammals, 9 species of birds and 9 species of reptiles will you choose? I will choose: (Mammals) 1. Giraffe (from any subspecies) 2. Gerenuk 3. African bush elephant 4. Common hippopothamus 5. Mantled guereza 6. Orangutan (Bornean) 7. Black howler monkey 8. Leopard (Indian subspecies) 9. Giant anteater (relatively easy to maintain in captivity) (Birds) 1. Wattled crane 2. Saddle-billed stork (Ok maybe pompadour's cottinga or balli mynach) 3. African fish eagle 4. King vulture 5. Hyacinth macaw 6. Chattering lory 7. Wrinkled hornbill 8. Keel-billed toucan 9. Great blue turaco (Reptiles) 1. Cuban crocodile 2. Rhinoceros iguana 3. Crocodile monitor 4. King cobra 5. Red spitting cobra 6. Eastern green mamba 7. Mexican West coast rattlesnake 8. Emerald tree boa 9. Papuan taipan Amphibians yes... they are reletively easy to keep What would be your ''3x9'' choice?
