    What changes would you make, if any, to the most recent Africa Rocks plan at the San Diego Zoo.
    I would add a Savannah with Giraffes, Zebra, Ostrich and Antelope, along with a lion exhibit that overlooks it. I would also add a Nocturnal Area with Aye-Ayes, bushbabys, aardvarks, bats, and mouse lemurs Screenshot (7).png

    I'm not sure that a giraffe exhibit can fit into the space you've circled. They need a lot more room than will a troop of baboons.

    Seeing as they tend to get shafted in the zoo world, I was close to saying hyena, but had to go with aye-aye because of how unique and rare they are, and how well it would have fit with the other Malagasy fauna.
