    A few questions about the mixed species African exhibit

    Can anyone help me find out the quantity of baboons, giraffes, and rhinos in the exhibit?

    Anything special in the any they manage it/allow access?

    It is also hard to tell what the baboon containment is from the pics...it looks as though it is just a number of horizontal wires?!

    Any idea on the height of the containment fence being used?
