    I had to request access to see it. Is it supposed to be like that?

    By the way, could I please access it?

    With hundreds of zoos in the US, should common really be 20+?

    Very good job though. It would be even better if the collections that hold rare species were listed.

    If someone wants to access it without having to send an email to @drill , this link should work:

    It is your opinion on what is rare.

    Off the top of my head, I know of at least 15:
    Audubon
    Baton Rouge
    Bright's
    Bronx
    Cincinnati
    Columbus
    Dallas
    Disney
    Louisiana Purchase Gardens
    Milwaukee
    North Carolina
    Peoria
    Phoenix
    San Diego Zoo Safari Park
    Wildlife World

    Whether I would consider that common or not, I don't know.

    I think you are able to edit the document. You are right. There will be 17 or 18 collections with the species, after a safari park in Mississippi opens. This is according to the AZA TAG program with ungulates which lists 189 Thompson gazelles in 14 AZA Zoos and 2 non. My home Zoo, Metro Richmond recently received some which they might not count.

    According to The Photo Ark, it looks like Lincoln Children's Zoo keeps Long-Haired Rousette as well.

    Fixed it for you.

    A couple things:

    Tiny Screaming Hairy Armadillos is missing (I know it's kept at Brookfield).

    The "Indochinese Tigers" in the US are actually Malayan Tigers.

    Kodiak Bear is missing. (Kept at Wildwood Zoo, Toledo, Alaska, and Space Farms)

    West Caucasian Tur is only kept by Racine.

    Pied-Billed Grebe is no longer kept at Brookfield.

    Franklin's Gull is missing. (Kept at Bay Beach).

    That's just what I noticed right away. Do you want me to edit these?

    I'm certain Franklin's gull is on there. Thanks for the updates on the grebe and tigers. You can add those others, though they should already be there, because I have visited all the collections you named. Hemker Park Zoo, I believe exhibits tur.

    You're right about Hemker Park Zoo. I am very surprised, considering I have been told several times that Racine is the only holder.

    One omission in the mammals section is mountain tapir, kept in Los Angeles and Cheyenne Mountain.

    Are there any bearded pigs still out there?
