    Hi all,

    I know this might be rehashing things but as I have never been to the Animalarium (but am curiousbecause of the threads) what enclosures do they have and in your opinion how could they be improved?

    It's been a year or so since I last went, but the leopard enclosure was shocking! It was smaller than the average owl aviary and very little in the way of interest for the animal.
    The fox enclosure was very small and very boring. The fox would do well in the current leopard cage though.
    Because of its status as an exotic pet rescue more than a zoo it suffers from the problem of single animals, both of the above species are kept alone, which doesn't seem right at all.
    The area is nice though, and I believe they have a lot more space to expand onto if they had the money. Until they do that, I'd like to see the big cats go elsewhere. JMO
