    Mouflon/Llama/Guanaco were housed in Lahore zoo's giraffe paddock for 3 years before the giraffes arrived.
    Rhesus macaque/Indian wolf mix at Peshawar zoo. A troop of 11 macaques share part of their enclosure with a lone male wolf. The wolf doesn't seem to pay any attention to the macaques at all.
    Small Asian mongoose/Lion. An inadvertent mix at Lahore zoo resulting from a mongoose population choosing to reside in and around the Lion House at Lahore zoo. Leftover food from the lions seems to be the cause.

    As of summer 2019, the Granby Zoo mixes East african crowned cranes with Japanese serows. Granted, this is temporary, and the zoo plans on moving its red-crowned cranes into them.

    I visited this zoo last week, and I did find it odd they had East African crowned cranes and guereza in the Asian section of the zoo (though at least their was a sign explaining the reasoning for the latter).

    Went to the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay in December 2018. They had Burmese Pythons mixed in with Asian Arrowanas and a Pig Nosed Turtle

    John Ball Zoo recently announced on Facebook that they have mixed a black-footed cat with sulcatta tortoises.

    I don't know if that counts but Tierpark Bochum, Germany has a mixed enclosure of Humboldt penguins and seals :)

    They have had it for ages already and given the failure of such an enclosure in other places, I am surprised it has been there this long...
