    I was reading through the most commented photos on Brookfield in the gallery here and you wouldn't guess that anyone liked this zoo much at all; really sad to see decade old comments talking about incoming improvements almost none of which ever arrived.

    It also feels so hard to believe Wild Encounters is a few years old now and Great Bear Wilderness several!

    It is really hard to believe that Great Bear Wilderness is nearly a decade old. It feels like yesterday when I was following its construction and checking it out during the member preview.

    A male giant anteater was born on December 15 and is now on exhibit.

    I may have just not noticed this exhibit before, but there seems to be a new hornet exhibit on the right of the basilisk/stingray tank. I couldn’t find any hornets but there were a few dead cockroaches.
