The title is pretty straight forward, but are there any animals at your hometown zoo that you miss? I’ll start with my hometown zoo the Detroit Zoo (a lot of these animals I didn’t know were at the zoo until recently): Brazilian Tapir- Tapirs are one of those animals that I always wanted to see in a zoo. Unfortunately when I was little, like every other kid in the zoo, I wanted to see the lions, Giraffes, seals, penguins, polar bears, and a lot of other common zoo animals. When I found out these were once at my hometown zoo, I was mad I never looked at them. African Slender-snouted crocodile- they had these for a very short time after the hippo passed away Hippopotamus- the hippo didn’t move much whenever I would visit, but who doesn’t like hippos. Lesser Kudu- I don’t know 100% for sure if they are gone, but can someone confirm this for me. Sichuan Takin- I have seen these, but I only focused on the Bactrian camels, which is why I forgot about them. Pudu- another animal I had no idea about Asian Elephants- I know that Michigan isn’t a good place to have captive elephants, but they were so cool. I only have a slight memory of them though. Lion-Tailed Macaque- these were always my favorite animals to see at the zoo. I was a little upset when I saw the lemurs took their spot. Siamese Crocodiles- It’s kind of sad that they no longer have a successful breeding program with these animals. Scimitar Horned Oryx- I think these might have left before I could actually remember stuff, but I love seeing rare endangered animals. Mongolian Wild Horse- a rare animal with a name I always struggled to pronounce. I’m going to keep this list short for other people with the same hometown zoo. I’d love to see what other animals used to be at you hometown zoo.
