    In the future I'm going to own a zoo so here I am talking about easy animals we can get our hands on without any illegal wildlife to make our zoos

    You're best bet in terms of getting animals would be to become a member of the ZAA. Once people in the industry respect your zoo you will be able to trade for more exotic animals with other zoos.

    To start with though you would probably want to get some Australian natives that can be held privately. Things like wallabies, snakes, lizards and insects etc. are easy to come by and will probably form the basis starting out.

    If you're zoo is going well in terms of natives then some of the species you may be able to get are meerkats, marmosets and other smaller animals that are quite abundant.

    If you want to see what species of animal are in large numbers throughout the region you should have a look over these threads which lists the zoos holding the species so you can see how many there are.

    I hope that helps and I wish you luck with your zoo.
