We then enter the Elephant Shrew House,home to Short-Snouted Elephant Shrew*,Rufous Elephant Shrew*, Four-Toed Elephant Shrew*, Checkered Elephant Shrew*, Black and Rufous Elephant Shrew* and Grey-Faced Elephant Shrew.

    The Wild Journey Zoo and Safari Park (I really could not think in a better name)

    I do not know where in the world this zoo might be, probably somewhere where the temperature was temperate, but it would be in a transitional region between a less forested such as prairie or a savanna (where the safari displays would be) and a forest (where the other areas would be).

    The zoo is divided into 16 areas:
    - Children's Zoo and the Lake (This area includes the reptile house and the insectarium)
    - The Inca Village (This area is inspired in three South American ecosystems: the Andes, the Patagonia and the Gran Chaco)
    - The Spirit of Europe (This area is inspired in Europe)
    - The Lost Temple (This area is inspired in South and Southeast Asia, including New Guinea)
    - The Safari Base Camp (This area is inpired in Southern Africa)
    - Canadian Domain (This area is inspired in North American woodlands and mountains)
    - The Flooded Rain Forest (This area is inspired in Brazilian Rainforests)
    - Australian Walkabout (This area is inspired in Australia)
    - Oriental Gardens (This area is inspired in East Asia)
    - Oceanarium (This area is inspired in the oceans of the world)
    - Madagascar Biodome (This area is inspired in Madagascar and surrounding islands)
    - Mysteries of the Southwest (This area is inspired in deserts and coasts of Southwestern North America)
    - Tumbili Big Apes Reserve (This area is inspired in Central African Rainforests)
    - The Polar Kingdom (This area is inspired in North Pole)
    - Land of the Pharaohs (This area is inspired in North Africa)
    - Lost in the Time (This area is inspired in New Zealand)
    - Safari Exhibits (African Savanna and Asian Plains)

    The Wild Journey Zoo and Safari Park
    Note: Every animal has a off-show area for privacy

    (Children's Zoo and the Lake - Part 01)

    The first part of this area is the Farm.
    In the barn, there are some terrariums for common leopard gecko, corn snake and russian tortoises, and also exhibits for domesitc hamster, four-toed hedgehog, long-tailed chinchilla, brown rat, house mouse and mongolian gerbil.
    Outside the barn there are several enclosures with various domestic animals and several free-ranging birds. The free-ranging birds are:
    • Common peafowl
    • Domestic chicken
    • Domestic guineafowl
    • Domestic mallard
    • Domestic muscovy duck
    • Greylag goose
    • Swan goose
    The enclosures are similar to each other, but meet the needs of the animals that inhabit them:
    • Alpaca, llama and red-footed tortoise
    • Domestic goat and domestic sheep
    • Domestic rabbit and guinea pig
    • Domestic ferret
    • Domestic cow
    • White-tailed deer, domestic turkey and red-eared slider
    • Domestic horse and donkey
    • Aviary: Common pheasant
    • Aviary: Common quail and domestic canary
    The last exhibit of the farm is a walk-through aviary for budgerigars and cockatiels

    The lake called The Paradise Lake houses several aquatic birds of Europe and five islands where some South American primates live
    The birds are:
    • Common shelduck
    • Eurasian teal
    • Eurasian wigeon
    • Ferruginous duck
    • Gadwall
    • Garganey
    • Great white pelican
    • Pink-footed goose
    • Red-breasted goose
    • Red-breasted merganser
    • Red-crested pochard
    • Tufted duck
    • Tundra swan
    The islands of the monkeys have several plants and several structures of climbing and a shelter to hide. The monkeys are black-horned capuchin, red-faced black spider monkey, white-headed capuchin, white-whiskered spider monkey and yellow-breasted capuchin

    I promise that in the next posts I will give more details about the exhibits.
