    Welcome to Zoochat. Do you have any sengi species in zoos in Florida?

    The only species that I am aware of in Californian zoos recently was a short-eared elephant shrew at the LA Zoo, but it is no longer there to my knowledge. The California Academy of Sciences had some sengi experts that discovered new species and studied their ecology, but they have not had any live ones on display to my knowledge.

    They are very cool species.

    I do wish some of my local zoos would have some but nonetheless I don’t have any live sengis in my local zoos at this time but thank you for asking.
