    These are the animal taxa currently kept in the two zoos in R. Macedonia (small land-locked country in South-East Europe), who are not members of EAZA, namely Skopje zoo and Bitola zoo. There are few other, petting zoos (Prilep, Stip-Brioni zoo), falconry, and aqarium for endemic freswater fish in Ohrid, wich is research and conservation institute.

    Zoo animals in Skopje zoo & Bitola zoo:

    (Mammals)
    Dromedary camel
    Liama

    Reticulated giraffe (total 3 in Skopje)
    Falow deer
    European red deer
    Roe deer
    Common eland
    Blue wildebeest
    Barbary sheep
    Himalayan thar
    Muflon
    Red forest buffalo (Congo buffalo)
    European bison
    Yak

    Common hipoppothamus

    Grant's zebra
    Przewalski's horse

    Tiger (either Siberian or hybrid, total of 4-5)
    Leopard (either Persian or hybrid, total 3 in the two zoos)
    African lion (total 8)
    Jaguar (2)
    Carpathian lynx

    Eurasian gray wolf
    Coyote
    Red fox
    Euroasian brown bear
    Ferret

    California sea lion (2)

    Lar gibbon
    Siamang
    Hamadryas baboon
    Pig-tailed macaque
    Collared mangabey
    Pathas monkey
    Yellow-handed tamarin
    Pygmy marmoset
    Ring-tailed lemur

    Red-necked wallaby


    (BIRDS)
    Green winged macaw
    Blue and yellow macaw
    Red rosella
    Cockatiel
    Griffon vulture (more than 20 birds)
    Golden eagle
    Snowy owl
    Peacock
    Golden pheasant
    Diamond pheasant
    Red necked pheasant
    Ostrich
    Emu

    (REPTILES)
    Nile crocodile
    Yellow anaconda
    Burmese python
    Quatorlineata snake
    Montepelier snake
    California king snake
    Bearded dragon
    Savanah monitor
    Basilisk (now dead I think)
    Some freshwater turtle in the pool

    So these zoos are non-EAZA. Some of their enclosures are nice, but some are substandard or small and not so appropriate.

    Some of the past animals include chimpanzees, pumas, polar bears, and elephants (very long time ago, well before 25 years or more).

    I hope so the pictures can be seen, because I can't see them directly on this thread. I don't know why,?

    Sometimes if you copy the 'Forum code' too soon after the pictures have been uploaded it doesn't work properly.
    Re-copy and paste all of them then they should work (I just tried one in the 'preview post' box and it worked).
