    I am working on a complete overview/review of the San Diego zoos many exhibits. This is a somewhat subbjective preliminary list of habitats. Let me know if you would categorize things differently, or if I missed or misnamed anything. An asterisk (*) implies a broad section which i do not intend to review as a whole (I will review its subsections).

    Discovery Outpost*
    Outdoor reptiles (reptile mesa, reptile walk)
    Reptile house
    Children's zoo
    Hummingbird Aviary


    Outback*
    Koalas
    Tasmanian Devils/Aviaries

    Urban Jungle

    Lost Forest*

    Monkey Trails and Forest tails
    Absolutely Apes
    Gorilla Tropics
    Tiger River
    Bonobos
    Ituri Forest
    Fern Canyon
    Aviary Trail
    Scripps Aviary
    Eagle Trail
    Waterfowl (Near eagle trail)

    Panda Canyon*

    Panda Trek
    Asian Leopards

    Asian Passage

    Bear Canyon

    Northern Frontier*

    Hoofed Mammals
    Polar Bear Plunge (All arctic habitats)
    Mountain Lion
    Maned Wolf

    P.S. As I mentioned before, this list is very preliminary and will change. Please give feedback.

    Thanks Zoochatters.

    It mostly looks correct; I'd suggest having Raptor Ridge or whatever it's called (Steller's Sea Eagle/Ornate Hawk-eagle/Andean Condor/Harpy Eagle) on the list as well? Or is that Eagle Trail?

    That is eagle trail. I didn't know what the official name was.

    I believe it was called Birds of Prey when I went. I try to label all my photos correctly with the animal along with its location in the zoo. My sea eagle photo from 2015 says it was in the Birds of Prey exhibit

    Ah, okay. I figured it was a high chance of being the same thing but wasn't positive hahaha.
