    I'm sure we all know that the best elephant exhibits at zoos have good outdoor enclosures and indoor holdings which serve their inhabitants well, from Omaha and Oregon, to any single one from a German zoo. If it weren't obvious from the thread, do you think there are any elephant buildings that are actually much better then the outdoor sections?

    Definitely Zurich zoo’s indoor elephant enclosure:

    I believe the elephants have an outdoor enclosure, but I may be wrong. This enclosure is actually the best i’ve ever seen for an elephant, indoor or outdoor!

    It appears to have some outside space

    Quite literally, only Zurich. I'd say every other zoo in the world, outdoor holding is vastly better than indoor.
