    When the Guadalupe caracara was alive did any zoo have the chance to exhibit them?

    In any case San Diego Zoo had it.

    thank you but didn't the Guadalupe caracara supposedly become extinct in 1906 and the San Diego zoo did not open until around 1914. Or am I missing any key details

    where you went wrong was confusing the San Diego Society of Natural History with the San Diego Zoological Society. The Zoological Society is not mentioned in the article. The Society of Natural History is what became the San Diego Natural History Museum.
