    I saw a thread about guess the animal, so I thought why not create a thread about guessing a zoo.

    So this is the way it goes:

    One person will give a sentence, hinting a tiny bit of information about their secret zoo of choice. Then, another people are allowed to attempt to guess the zoo. The first sentence must contain information that gives a hint. The person may give out as many sentences containing information about the zoo, as many times as they want; with the sentences gradually getting easier to help people guess the zoo. Once a person has guessed the zoo, they pick a zoo and so on.

    Heres the first sentence: Their African Savanna exhibit, which included the first ever Hippoquarium opened in 1986.

    Hope you guys enjoy it. ;)

    Sorry, got sidetracked and blanked on this thread for a couple weeks.

    Here is the first sentence: This zoo was the first in the world outside of China to breed giant pandas; the first cub was born in 1980.

    First sentence: This zoo in Asia is one of the few zoo that has housed my favourite animal. (either now or before)


    I think you know what's my favourite animal by my username.

    Firstly, it's Ueno, and second, No, it's not Ueno.

    Now another sentence?
