    Honestly,so many Asian zoos seem to be of horrible exhibit quality. As both a human and a zoo enthusiast,it strikes a nerve,and gives the activists more "evidence" in their war against zoos. :rolleyes:

    Wow, that is saddening. And this is true when I say this that wild animals should never be kept in malls among many places. In fact some of the worst zoos that I wouldn't even call zoos at all are in malls. Pata Zoo which keeps a gorilla in a 18century style exhibit and a single humboldt's penguin, Exotarium Rio which has orangutans, fur seals, and cheetahs in mock-rock exhibits behind glass, and the now closed Merle May Hall Zoo which kept wolfs, coyotes and black bears in unsafe and crowed conditions. Just like the other two mentioned and this. Even without a zoo, its never best to buy you're daughters puppy dog or kitten from a mall pet shop.
