Hi zoochatters, Can we identify some styles of zoos in respect to every zoo-related thing, like for example size of zoo and size of enclosures, general design of zoo and management with space, species kept, etc. What would be most typical for: in particular for: -European zoo -American zoo (USA & Canada) but also for: -Asian zoo -Australasian zoo -South (Latin) American and/or African zoo Once I read from one zoochatter (I can't remmember from who (I think it was Zooplantman or jayjads2) and in what thread, that San Antonio zoo is ''most European zoo in the US'' because it is creative with it's limited available space). What about South Lake zoo or Valencia bioparc as ''most American zoo in Europe''? Or Berlin Tierpark and Berlin zoo or Dutch zoos as very typical European zoos? Of course this can be best explained by zoochatters who visited zoo in question in person. -I generally see European zoo as smaller than American zoo in size, but richer in species. Also more indoor enclosures in Europe than in North America. -European zoo, with more old buildings, with more concrete, and more liberal in respect to public opinion for particular zoo actions (like for example public euthanasia of zoo animal). -American zoo has wast open enclosures and better presentation of hoofed animals. -American zoo society seems that have more strict rules in respect to what zoos will keep certain zoo animal; situation in Europe is more resourceful - giving a chance to new zoos, who from recently were substandard, to keep some more charizmatic, endangered or rare-in-zoos-animals. -Australian zoos, are somehow mix or resembling more North American zoos with some Asian influence, but with very low diversity of species compared to European zoos. -(Far-East) Asian zoos are quite typical; small enclosures, crowding, a lot of tigers and orangutans. -Propose some examples of ''most-European zoo in America'' or ''most-American zoo in Europe'' or ''most Australian zoo in Europe (owning to australian species kept in the zoo), or ''most Asian zoo in Europe'' or ''most European zoo in Australasia (including New Zealand)'', or ''most Asian zoo in the US'' ... opportunities goes on... What are your thoughts on this? I know it is very subjective to judge, but can we try just for fun.
