    An overdue update:

    119 (US 64). Oklahoma City Zoo
    120 (US 65). Tulsa Zoo
    121 (US 66). Oklahoma Aquarium
    122 (US 67). Sedgwick County Zoo
    123 (US 68). Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium
    124 (US 69). Topeka Zoo
    125 (US 70). SeaQuest Trumbull
    126 (US 71). Eleanor Buck Wolf Nature Center

    I'm not exactly sure how to count the Kansas Wildlife Exhibit in Wichita. It's basically a small rectangle of around 7 enclosures in the middle of a public park.

    What were your thoughts on Oklahoma and Sedgwick County? They aren’t talked about much on this forum but they seem to be really good zoos.

    I thought OKC was a really good zoo, although their new Asian area is a bit of a bust to me. Really solid elephant exhibit, though. I was also happy to see so many Raccoon Dogs running around (at least six). Sedgwick County I thought was just great. One of the best elephant exhibits I've ever seen and a really solid collection of species and exhibits all around. I can definitely see why people consider it a contender for America's best zoo given time.
