    As I mentioned in the zoo's news thread, lots of changes seem to have been made recently at the zoo. I mentioned a few there, but decided it would be simpler to make a species list.

    As this zoo isn't really sorted into 'complexes' like other zoos are, I will be sorting them into 'type' of animal. Please note that this may or may not mean the exhibits are close together.

    Do any other zoos in the United States have Indochinese Tigers?

    No, and neither does this one. They are all misidentified Malayan.

    @jayjds2 Do you remember how this was decided? Was it through import history or extensive genetic analyses?

    I believe it was through import history, but I’m not the right one to ask.

    What are the thoughts you guys have on this zoo? I know it has had some problems in the past.

    I’ve only seen one episode of the show “ my life is a zoo “ but I really think that bigger and better enclosures can be added.

    It's a very mixed bag.

    On one hand, the tigers, lions, bears, hippo, and turkeys get excellent exhibits better than some AZA zoos. A few animals though, especially the primates, have bad enclosures. A new primate complex is planned, however. :D

    I suppose I could write a review if anyone is interested.
