    This is going to seem a bit silly, but how do you think fictional species would do in zoos if they were real? I'm talking about the relatively realistic ones, not silly ones like Pokemon or Godzilla (Monster Hunter or King Kong is fine though).

    I can't imagine Vastatosaurus rexes or Kong doing very well in captivity, but the smaller dinosaurs and reptiles on Skull Island probaby would, in fact I think it makes no sense that none of the smaller live animals or even cadavers were taken from the island before it sunk in the book. I came up woth, but didn't write, a fanfiction where DNA from some Skull Island samples was used to clone animals and recreate the Skull Island ecosystem on a certain island off the coast of Costa Rica.

    How do you guys think fictional species would do in zoos?

    Giant invisible rabbits are common in zoos. They are responsible for all the little things of the zoo staff going missing. They carry them and hide in their burrows underground.
